Georgia senior running back Kenny McIntosh was arrested Sunday morning, according to the Athens-Clarke County jail log. McIntosh was booked at 5:45 am on misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and for failure to use a safety belt.
McIntosh was released at 6:54 am on bonds totaling $2,000.
McIntosh is coming off a junior campaign where he showed glimpses of what he can do when called upon.
McIntosh led Georgia’s running backs with 5.69 yards per carry in 2021 after taking 58 carries for 330 yards and 3 touchdowns. McIntosh showed off his ability to catch the ball as well by reeling in 22 passes for 242 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
McIntosh and junior running back Kendall Milton are viewed as Georgia’s leading running backs entering 2022.
McIntosh spoke on March 17 about his likely increased role this fall.
“I knew this was going to come. To be honest, I have been waiting on it. With them gone, I feel like I got a bigger role. I have a larger load on my back. I have to step up a little more . Be more vocal. Be a much bigger leader than I was last year. So taking on that role with my brothers so they know I got their back and they got mine.”
McIntosh is the second Georgia player arrested this month. defensive tackle Warren Brinson was arrested on April 7 on two misdemeanor charges of simple battery stemming from an incident involving a gel ball gun.
