Donavaughn Campbell

Ed Orgeron suffered his first major discipline situation this week with the reports that freshman offensive lineman Donavaughn Campbell was arrested on two counts of misdemeanor battery over the weekend on Georgia Tech’s campus.

Campbell’s suspension was announced shortly after the reports surfaced today.

According to the report, the event unfolded at the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity House at Georgia Tech at 12:21 a.m. CT Sunday. Two victims, both GT students, told police that they were punched in the face and head by two men. Campbell was arrested along with Georgia Tech safety Jalen Johnson, the report said. Johnson was booked with one count of simple battery.

Players typically are given a few days off on open weekends, and Campbell has family at Georgia Tech, which one assumes he was visiting. Campbell, a four-star recruit from Ponchatoula, had impressed in training camp and seen some limited playing time as a reserve before suffering an ankle injury.
