Georgia starting linebacker Natrez Patrick has resolved his probation violation case stemming from a drug arrest and entered treatment, his lawyer said Thursday.
Patrick was not at Georgia’s practice on Thursday. There was no immediate word from the team on his status with the team or for the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.
“Natrez is receiving treatment for his personal issues and we look forward to the completion of that treatment so he can put this behind him,” said Billy Healan, who is Patrick’s lawyer. “This resolves all his legal matters.”
Healan said he wouldn’t speak to the type or length of the treatment due to confidentiality concerns. The court documents don’t include that information.
Court documents from Athens-Clarke County show that Patrick agreed to waive a planned hearing for Jan. 11, at which he would answer an allegation that he tested positive for marijuana, violating his probation. The documents say that Patrick had positive drug tests twice in Athens-Clarke County over the past three weeks.
