REMERTON, Ga. -- A quarterback competing for the starting job at the University of Georgia has been released on bond after his arrest in south Georgia over the weekend on charges related to underage drinking.
A Remerton Police report says Zach Mettenberger was arrested at a bar called Flip Flops early Sunday and charged with underage consumption and possession of alcohol, possessing fake identification and disorderly conduct-obstruction.
Chief Mike Terrell said Monday the circumstances are still being investigated.
The 18-year-old Mettenberger is a redshirt freshman from Oconee County. The university is on spring break.
An athletic department spokesman did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment, and a phone listing for Mettenberger couldn't be found.
