Defensive linemen James DeLoach and Jonathan Taylor and receiver Uriah LeMay, the younger brother of former Bulldogs quarterback Christian LeMay, also were charged. According to the Athens-Clarke County jail booking report, LeMay is facing four misdemeanor counts, Matthews three, with DeLoach and Taylor each facing two.
