Georgia defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter has been arrested on misdemeanor driving under the influence and underage alcohol possession charges, according to ESPN. 

The arrest is the second alcohol related charge for Ledbetter, 18, who was previously arrested on misdemeanor charges in March. He was booked at 6:05 a.m. ET by the Athens-Clark County Police.

Ledbetter was initially suspended by coach Kirby Smart for one game for his first arrest. The charges were dropped, however, Smart has not said whether the suspension still stands.
