ATHENS, GA. (AP) - University of Georgia tailback Washaun Ealey is charged with crashing into a parked truck and not reporting it to police.

UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said Ealey crashed his roommate’s Chevrolet Impala into a UGA truck sitting in a school parking deck in Athens early Friday morning. No injuries were reported.

University employees told Ealey to stay at the scene until police arrived, but he left.

Police contacted Ealey’s roommate and learned the player had been driving. He was arrested and charged with driving on a suspended license and failing to report an accident.

Ealey was being held in the Clarke County Jail. A UGA spokesman did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Ealey rushed for 717 yards with three touchdowns as a freshman last season for Georgia, which is ranked No. 23.
