    D u m b. But nothing a thousand thousand other foolish children haven’t done. At least there’s nothing that says anyone was hurt. Gotta grow up.

    Good thing no one was injured, or worse. Nothing new that young adults make unwise choices at times, I'm as guilty as anyone for making some not so smart decisions when I was a lot younger. I just hope Mr. Bullard learns from his mistakes as I did, and doesn't repeat those actions again..GoDAWGS!!

    Young kids will do dumb things especially college kids. I want to thank the officers for making sure he didn’t harm anyone while driving impaired. Let this be a lesson and a wake up call. The rest of the charges are all related to driving infractions that tend to happen due to not being of sound mind. Celebrate the win but don’t drink to the point you can’t recall the next day or that you can’t drive home in case you need to. Coach will mentor this young man hopefully he can get set on the path he needs and this is a turning point in his life as to just how lucky he is to have not hurt himself or others.

    I'm pro-law enforcement, but Athens finest hanging 7 charges on this kid is how they roll in Clarke County... and it's pretty ridiculous. That said, it's a known fact this is what's lurking out there, so you have to make sacrifices to keep your nose clean. The "Georgia Standard" Kirby talks about extends well beyond the football field, into the classroom, and across the community. Hopefully Bullard will bounce back and be better for it, and other kids will take notice of what's required to maintain the Georgia Standard. Go Dawgs!

    More than just a dumb thing most people have done. It’s going to keep him out a couple of games. He hurt his team.

    It was a bad decision and the BAC supports the DUI charge. That said, if he were a white, frat kid from Alpharetta, the officers would not have overcharged like that. At some point, the Univ President and the Coach have to call out this type of targeting of players. It does not happen elsewhere.

    LOL...Why don't you put your "Victim Card" back in your wallet and wait for the facts to come out. He may have gotten belligerent with the Officers and they felt the need to teach him a lesson.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but, my "White Privilege" is worthless. I think it's broke. I never got a **** thing out of it. Hell, I'd trade it for your "Victim Card" and I'll throw in a "Get out of Jail Free" Card. People are using those everywhere...I just don't need it. LOL

    Well, honestly, DUI, underage drinking and possession, and operating a cell phone while driving are things millions of people do every single day. Not that it's right, but it's a teenager in a college setting. I'm surprised that I wasn't arrested myself for more than just DUI! I got lucky during my time at UGA.

    "It is unlikely that Bullard is suspended for the Missouri game and discipline is likely to be handled internally as has been the case for Georgia with arrests as of late under Kirby Smart."

    SO, he gets to keep playing?

    Thanks for your honesty !! I did some Utterly Bone Headed things in my younger days !! Things I’m not the least bit proud of. But I Did at least try to Learn from my Idiotic decisions. I Thank God ( and I Really mean That !!) that I didn’t get into some Very serious trouble or Even Worse cause someone else severe injury or even death !! No matter what age group a person is in better STOP and ThINK before you make a decision to DO something !! Some decisions can cause you a life time of misery !! My hope is that he will Learn from his mistakes and make better decisions. Sounds like You learned !! I respect your honesty and that you Chose to start making better decisions !!
