UGA Police issued a brief report in its Jan. 11 daily log about a Jan. 10 incident involving two cars allegedly racing on College Station Road near East Campus Road. At the time, police said the incident would be investigated for possible violations of racing, reckless driving, driving too fast for conditions, fleeing and/or attempting to elude.
“Officer attempted to stop two vehicles that were driving in a reckless manner while apparently racing each other on the roadway, officer discontinued the traffic stop after both vehicles fled at high speeds with the intent to elude him,” according to the report.
Five days later, Dumas-Johnson was among at least two Georgia football players who police sought information shortly after the crash that took the lives of football player Devin Willock and recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy, according to dispatch logs from the Jan. 15 incident.
Dumas-Johnson started every game at middle linebacker for the Bulldogs during their run to the national championship last season.
This is at least the fourth incident involving football players and local police since the beginning of last season.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
