UGA lineman arrested

Georgia offensive lineman Vince Vance was arrested Wednesday morning by UGA Police on traffic charges.

He was charged with running a red light and driving without a license, according to the Clarke County Jail booking report and UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson.

A UGA spokesman said coach Mark Richt is aware of the incident and that it will not affect Vance's availability for Saturday's game against Florida.

"Coach Richt will handle discipline internally, but [Vance] will not be suspended from Saturday's game," Georgia associate athletics director Claude Felton said.

Vance was booked into the Clarke County jail at 9:47 a.m. and released on bonds totaling $1,000 at 11:54 a.m., according to jail records.

Williamson said Vance was pulled over for running a red light on College Station Road near the UGA intramural fields and was arrested because he does not have a valid driver's license.

Vance, 22, has a learner's permit but violated the conditions of that permit by not having an 18-year-old-or-older licensed driver in the vehicle with him, Williamson said.
