After Georgia's 17-16 defeat to Vanderbilt, two of the team's starting linebackers experienced a run-in with the law last Saturday.

Police were called to the dorm by an R.A. who smelled weed on the fourth floor of the building. The police traced the smell to a room occupied by tarting linebackers Roquan Smith and Natrez Patrick.

At this time, it's unknown if sophomore inside linebackers Natrez Patrick and Roquan Smith will receive disciplinary action after being involved in a marijuana-related incident October 15. Neither Patrick, nor Smith was arrested in relation to the incident.

However, listed in the police report is what the officer did find.

However, police said Patrick admitted to keeping marijuana a hidden compartment built within a fake can of Arizona Strawberry Tea that was confiscated. It's the second marijuana incident for Patrick, who was arrested previous year along with former Georgia player Chauncey Rivers on a marijuana possession charge.

At this time it is unclear as to what disciplinary action will be taken with Patrick and Smith, if any.

While answering questions on the weekly SEC coaches teleconference, Georgia head coach Kirby Smart was asked what he could say about the incident, and whether or not the two would be available for Georgia's next game on October 29 against Florida.

Georgia has a bye week this Saturday, but will face Florida in Jacksonville on October 29.
