Richt reduces Georgia lineman's suspension

Boling will only miss one game for reckless driving charge


Published on: 07/31/08

Clint Boling's suspension was reduced to one game by Georgia coach Mark Richt on Thursday.

Boling, a sophomore guard from Alpharetta, was suspended two games earlier this month after he was arrested and charged with DUI on May 14. That charge was reduced to reckless driving on Wednesday.

"With the change in the charges and the attitude that Clint has demonstrated I have reevaluated his situation and decided on the one-game suspension as a fair penalty," Richt said in a press release. "Clint has been remorseful and pro-active in handling all his responsibilities in a mature manner with a good attitude. He's learned a strong lesson that I'm sure will serve him well from here on."

Alcohol-related convictions are automatic suspensions under the Georgia Athletic Association's conduct code but misdemeanors are left to the coach's discretion.

Boling, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound graduate of Chattahoochee High, played in all 13 games and started 11 as a true freshman last season. He is slated to start again this season
