Georgia Bulldogs CB Shaq Wiggins arrested, released on bond for traffic charges

Georgia Bulldogs defensive back Shaw Wiggins was arrested on Sunday night and later released after he posted bond on speeding charges and driving with a suspended license.


Wiggins was clocked going 52 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone. It was then determined that not only was Wiggins going a little too fast, but he also shouldn’t have been driving the vehicle in the first place.

“As (the officer) ran his driver’s license doing a check, it returned for a failure to appear so he arrested him for that,” said Hilda Sorrow, Athens-Clarke County police spokeswoman.

Wiggins’ license had been suspended after he failed to appear at a court hearing, but the spokeswoman wouldn’t go into detail about that aspect of it, other than to say that his license had been suspended.

Wiggins started eight games as a freshman in 2013 and led the team with two interceptions and threw in 19 tackles.
