Stetson Bennett, the quarterback for Georgia, was detained early on Sunday on suspicion of public intoxication, according to a report from Dallas-based TV station WFAA. A Dallas Police Department representative told ESPN that around 7:10 a.m. ET on Sunday, officers had rushed to a report of a guy pounding on doors in the 1600 block of Tribeca Way. The cops did not specify whether Bennett was the one who started the commotion, but it seems that way.
