ATHENS, Ga. (AP) _ Junior guard Billy Humphrey has been
indefinitely suspended from the Georgia basketball team following
his arrest for possession of a weapon on school property.
Humphrey's lawyer, Kim Stephens, says he will file a motion as
early as tomorrow to have the charge dismissed. Stephens says the
charge stems from ``what amounts to a little butterfly knife in a
winter coat in a closet.''
He says possession of such a knife in a campus residence is not
illegal. Stephens says his goal is to have Humprhey back to playing
basketball as soon as possible.
The Bulldogs previously dismissed senior forward Takais Brown
for violation of team policies. Guard Mike Mercer and forward
Albert Jackson, both sophomores, are serving suspensions for
violation of academic policies.
The Bulldogs played host to Grambling State last night.
Humphrey, from Dacula, started and scored 13 points in Georgia's
season-opening win over Jacksonville State.
