ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Georgia has dismissed junior receiver Jeremiah Holloman from the football team after university police investigated an allegation that he punched and choked his girlfriend.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours of April 22, 2018, after the G-Day spring game. It was reported to campus police earlier this month, but the woman did not want to pursue criminal charges so the case is inactive.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart says “we expect every member of our team to uphold the highest standards and values of the University of Georgia and Georgia football. It’s disappointing when this does not happen.”

According to the police report, the woman says she began arguing with Holloman after the spring game and called his brother to pick her up from his dorm room. While waiting for the brother to arrive, she reported “being grabbed around the throat and punched in the face” by Holloman.

Holloman was the leader among Georgia’s returning receivers. He had 24 catches for 418 yards with five touchdowns last season.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
