ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia tailback Isaiah Crowell has been dismissed from the team by coach Mark Richt following his arrest on felony weapons charges.

Richt announced the dismissal of Crowell on Friday. Police found a gun in Crowell's vehicle early Friday morning.

Crowell was arrested at a vehicle checkpoint on the Georgia campus at around 2:20 a.m., according to Athens-Clarke Police Department spokeswoman Hilda Sorrow. Among the charges he faces are carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon on school property.

Crowell consented to a search after officers smelled marijuana in the vehicle. Police found a 9-millimeter Luger pistol under the driver's seat with an altered serial number.

Crowell was released on bond Friday afternoon.

As a freshman in 2011, Crowell led Georgia with 850 yards rushing.
