The Macon Telegraph
is reporting that Georgia defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor was arrested early Tuesday morning on a felony charge of aggravated assault and domestic battery.
An incident occurred between Taylor and his girlfriend at a dorm hall, and police say they found "visible marks" on the girlfriend's neck.
Just before 3 a.m. on Tuesday morning, UGA police responded to a call about a possible domestic incident at a dorm hall. The call was made by a "third party" who reported that her friend had been injured by her boyfriend, according to UGA police chief Jimmy Williamson.
Police met with the victim at Busby Ball, along with the friend who had called police.
"Based on the information obtained from the victim it was determined that an incident had occurred at the hall," Williamson said.
Police went to Taylor's residence at McWhorter Hall, and after further interviews they determined there was "significant probable cause" to charge Taylor.
Taylor redshirted in 2012 after signing as a four-star recruit out of Jenkins County High School. He played in 10 games last year, recording nine tackles and one sack
