The University of Georgia announced that sophomore running back Isaiah Crowell has been dismissed from the team.

Crowell was arrested early Friday morning on three weapons charges, two of them felonies.

"We have a dedicated and committed group of men who are working hard to prepare for the coming season," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "Our total focus will be directed toward the team and this effort."

He faces charges of possessing a concealed weapon, having a weapon in a school zone and having an altered ID mark on that weapon. He was released Friday afternoon, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

According to the police report, four other Georgia football players were also in Crowell’s vehicle, including three 2012 freshman signees. Those persons were outside linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons, wide receiver Blake Tibbs and defensive back Sheldon Dawson. Also present was sophomore defensive back Quintavius Harrow. None of the four were charged.

Crowell rushed for 850 yards and five touchdowns last season as a freshman.
