Former University of Georgia defensive tackle, Devonte Wyatt Carter, has found himself in trouble with the law once again. This time, he was caught driving with a suspended license.
Carter was pulled over by the Athens-Clarke County police department on Tuesday, May 18th, on the suspicion of driving with a suspended license. He was subsequently arrested and taken to the Athens-Clarke County Jail. According to court records, this is not the first time that Carter has had his license suspended. In fact, he has had his license suspended multiple times before, most recently in February of this year.
This latest incident is just the latest in a series of legal troubles that Carter has faced over the past few years. In 2019, he was arrested for possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He was also arrested in 2020 for hit-and-run and driving under the influence.
Carter’s legal troubles have caused concern among his former coaches and teammates at the University of Georgia. Former UGA defensive lineman, David Pollack, tweeted about Carter’s most recent arrest, saying “Someone needs to help Devonte Wyatt Carter… Getting arrested for traffic violations like driving with a suspended license? Come on man…”
Pollack’s tweet highlights the concern that many in the UGA community have for Carter’s wellbeing. It’s clear that he is struggling with some personal demons and needs help to get his life back on track.
It’s not yet clear what consequences Carter will face as a result of this latest arrest. However, it’s becoming increasingly clear that he needs to take steps to address his underlying issues and get the help that he needs.
The University of Georgia has a responsibility to support its former players, especially when they are facing personal struggles. It’s important that they step up and offer resources and support for Carter to get his life back on track.
In the meantime, fans of the University of Georgia football team will watch and wait to see what happens with Carter. Hopefully, he will take the steps necessary to turn his life around and move forward in a positive direction.
