Saints cornerback Damian Swann played his college football at the University of Georgia, but a trip back in Athens this month included a run-in with police that ended with an arrest.
Swann was arrested early Friday morning and the Macon Telegraph reports that he has been charged with both speeding and reckless driving. Per the police report, Swann was pulled over at 2:17 a.m. after being recorded going 100 mph in a 65 mph zone.
That accounts for both charges as the police report states that “driving 35 mph over the posted speed limit and was driving in complete disregard for the safety of his passenger and the motorist that he passed.” Swann could face up to 12 months in jail and a fine up to $1,000.
Swann, who was released from jail a couple of hours later, was a fifth-round pick in 2015. He played seven games, but ended the year on injured reserve after suffering three concussions over the course of the regular season.
