Donte Williams, a University of Georgia Basketball Player, told media last week that he had been cleared of marijuana charges leveled against him after he was arrested in the parking lot of Buckhead's Lenox Square in May.
Sitting alongside Coach Mark Fox at a press conference, Williams issued this statement, according to the AJC:
“I know everybody here is aware of the incident that took place on May 25th. First I want to apologize for bringing negative attention to the University and towards me team and towards my family. But I want the truth to be known that I don’t do drugs. Soon after the incident I took a drug test; passed my drug test. I came up here and passed my drug test and took another drug test for the court and passed that drug test. The case has been dismissed. Since then I have moved on and focused on basketball, focused on school and I’m getting ready for the season now. That’s it.”
