Two former UGA athletes arrested

Former basketball player Demario Mayfield and former football player Ricardo Crawford were arrested near campus over the weekend and charged with possession of armed robbery gear.

An officer who confronted the driver saw a clown mask on the floorboard, a furry hat on the seat, and a handgun tucked in the man’s crotch, according to the report. The man was ordered out, where he was handcuffed and the gun secured, police said.

The officer then noted that he found a pair of latex gloves and a bag containing the residue of marijuana.

The second officer also found a handgun in the floorboard beside the passenger, along with a dust mask and latex gloves, all described as “armed robbery gear,” according to the report.
