STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • He was arrested in Arizona early in February
  • Ogletree has had several off-the-field incidents
  • Linebacker led the Bulldogs in tackles despite missing four games this year

Former Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree, a potential first-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft, is no stranger to off-the-field issues.

His latest incident, a DUI arrest in early February, comes with the NFL Combine days away.

Via ProFootballtalk:

"Last weekend, my client Alec Ogletree was pulled over for speeding and a lane violation in Arizona," agent Pat Dye, Jr. told the website. "After the officers smelled alcohol, they conducted tests and also cited him for DUI. Although Alec regrets this incident terribly, he is thankful that there was no accident and that no one was hurt. Because this matter is still pending, we cannot comment further publicly at this time."

Ogletree had also missed Georgia's first four games this season for reportedly failing drug tests, and he was suspended the first game of his freshman season as well after being arrested for stealing a track athlete's motorcycle helmet.

The 6-foot-3, 232-pound Ogletree finished the 2012 season with 111 tackles, most on the Bulldogs, despite the absence.

Ogletree was pegged to go to the Steelers with the 17th pick in USA TODAY Sports' latest mock draft.
