Rochester and Clay were each charged with having a weapon in a school zone, and criminal damage in the second degree, according to the online booking site for Athens-Clarke County.
Both were booked at 12:13 a.m., and remained in jail as of 9 a.m. The weapon in a school zone charge carries no bond. The criminal damage charge carries a bond of $5,000.
“I’m disappointed with the poor judgment of Julian and Chad,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said in a statement. “We expect full compliance with the policies of the University and of our football program from all our student-athletes. Information is still being gathered but they will be disciplined in an appropriate manner.”
