Two-time NCAA National Championship winner and starting quarterback for the University of Georgia, Stetson Bennett, was arrested by Dallas Police early Sunday morning.

Officers responded to calls around 6 a.m. Sunday in the 1600 block of Tribeca Way in Old East Dallas on reports of a man banging on doors in the area, according to police.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Bennett and determined he was intoxicated, police said.

Dallas Police arrested 25-year-old Bennett and transported him to a city detention center, according to police.

The investigation is ongoing.

Bennett led the Bulldogs to two national title wins, previously defeating Alabama and recently trouncing the TCU Horned Frogs to a 65-7 win.

The incident took place in District 14, which is presided over by Dallas City Councilman Paul Ridley, who has been the subject of The Dallas Express Crime Boss Series.

District 14 is located in the Dallas Police Department’s central patrol division.

The Dallas Express reached out to The Dallas Police Department for additional information but did not receive any at the time of deadline.
