Georgia athletic director Damon Evans speaks during a news conference in Athens on Thursday. A state trooper pulled Evans over late Wednesday night for driving erratically. Police said Evans smelled of alcohol and was given a field sobriety test. He was taken to Atlanta's city jail on charges of DUI and failure to maintain a lane.
Atlanta, GA (AP) - The arraignment of former University of Georgia
athletic director Damon Evans has been postponed until January.
Evans had been scheduled to appear in Atlanta Municipal Court on
Wednesday in the drunken driving case that led to his resignation.
Evans was arrested on the night of June 30, minutes before a new
contract paying him over $500,000 a year was to take effect. He
resigned five days later.
The police report says a state trooper pulled over Evans' 2009
BMW. Evans was charged with DUI, illegal lane change and failure to
submit to an alcohol test.
Evans' companion, Courtney Fuhrmann, was charged with disorderly
conduct for allegedly refusing to obey a trooper's request to stay
in the car. She is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 13.
