According to the reporting officer, it was learned there was a verbal altercation between the parties. Wyatt allegedly kicked the female’s door “multiple times from the hallway, damaging the door and forcing it open.”
The report also states that Wyatt lived with the female, on and off, which led to the incident being classified as a “family violence” incident.
Both Wyatt and the female were released “pending the completion of any follow-up investigation,” and “neither party indicated they were in fear for their safety.”
A warrant for Wyatt’s arrest was issued at 4:40 p.m. Monday, and the Athens-Clarke County booking reported indicates it was served at 11:35 p.m. Tuesday.
Wyatt is part of a defense returning nine starters off a unit that throttled Baylor in the Sugar Bowl 26-14. Wyatt, who played in 13 of the 14 games and was second on the team with 19 quarterback pressures, was among those nine returning starters.
Six players were arrested over a six-week span last spring, drawing national headlines.
Smart took the blame, saying last spring: “I’ve obviously done a poor job with this group of connecting and making sure they listen and understand thing.”
Four of the six players who were arrested last offseason are no longer with the team.
Smart took harsh measures to stem the arrest trend that emerged last spring, making players run stadium steps in front of a crowd of boosters during a closed scrimmage.
