ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia tailback Washaun Ealey has been suspended for at least one game by coach Mark Richt following the sophomore's arrest.

Ealey, the team's leading rusher last season, was arrested early Friday and charged with hit and run and driving on a suspended license.

Richt says he is extremely disappointed with Ealey's poor judgment.

UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said Ealey was driving his roommate's Chevrolet Impala when he hit a parked truck in a school parking deck at 3:19 a.m. on Friday.

Williamson said alcohol was not involved.

Ealey was released from the Clarke County Jail after posting bond of $4,800.
