Georgia Bulldogs' Ty Flournoy-Smith Arrested For Falsely Reporting Crime

Well, this has to go down as one of the dumbest crimes in recent college football history. Georgia Bulldogs tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith was arrested on Friday night and charged with falsely reporting a crime.

Flournoy-Smith decided that it would be a good idea to report his textbooks to authorities as stolen, despite the fact that he knew exactly where they were. It gets worst for Flournoy-Smith. He didn’t just misplace his textbooks before reporting them as stolen; he sold them to the campus bookstore.

That is just a little different than them being stolen.

“He went through this whole story of his books being stolen,” University of Georgia police chief Jimmy Williamson said, per the Athens Banner-Herald. “We started looking into it and it was determined that the books were not stolen. He had taken his own books down to a local book buying company and sold them back to them.”

Who knows what Flournoy-Smith was trying to pull, but he found himself booked into the Clarke County jail at 10:56 p.m Friday. He was later released on $1,000 bond.

Georgia has yet to release a statement on the situation, but let me issue one for them — “How can you be so stupid?”
