It is the eighth football player arrested so far this year in school.
Freshman safety Alec Ogletree turned himself in Friday to the reserve in the Clarke County Jail with bail set at 1500 y.
Ogletree is one of four freshmen that the coaches were scheduled to play in Saturday’s game against Louisiana-Lafayette.
“It’s certainly an unfortunate sequence of events,” said Georgia coach Mark Richt. “I’m disappointed in the situation and will continue to gather information in their case is processed through the appropriate legal channels.
“Meanwhile, Alec is still responsible for a bad decision and will serve a minimum of one game suspension as a result.”
Ogletree is accused of a June 15 incident in which a UGA track and field athlete reported the theft of a scooter and helmet valued at 35.
“In recent days it emerged that a man who had,” said Police Chief Jimmy Williamson campus Friday. “Based on some documentation and statements made by Mr. Ogletree, was charged with theft for taking the helmet.”
The police spoke to Ogletree in person Friday morning. The order was issued in the afternoon.
The broker Washaun Ealey, the leading rusher on the team last year, is suspended for one game following his arrest a week ago to hit and run of a parked vehicle and driving with a suspended license. Receiver Tavarres King is suspended for the opener after being arrested for possession of alcohol by minors.
Three Georgia players were dismissed from team this spring after his arrest, arrested and another player decided to transfer.
