“Obviously, I’m extremely disappointed,” Smart said on Tuesday, after the Bulldogs’ fourth spring practice. “There’s a standard of behavior that’s expected of student athletes at the University of Georgia.”

Sophomore linebacker Latavius Brini was arrested charged with misdemeanor simple battery. Linebacker Jaden Hunter was arrested for car violations and driving with a suspended license and defensive back Tyrique Stevenson along with wide receiver Tyler Simmons were allegedly involved in a skirmish at a bar in Athens.

Smart said he expects all his players to be “law-abiding citizens.”

“My concerns are the decisions that are made to put yourself in that situation,” Smart said. “When you go downtown you’ve got to behave. You’ve got to act the right way and be law-abiding citizens. That’s the expectations we have for our players, and to be honest with you, most of our guys do that.
