ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- University of Georgia tailback Washaun Ealey has been arrested for allegedly 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 one was reported hurt.

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

Williamson said police later contacted Ealey's roommate and learned the football player had been driving the Chevy. 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.
