Arrest warrants have been issued for Jalen Carter, a prominent defensive lineman for Georgia, in connection with a fatal car accident that claimed the lives of his teammate and a team staffer.

According to the Athens-Clarke County Police, an investigation revealed that Carter, who is presently participating in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and is a top contender for the No. 1 selection in the 2023 NFL Draft, was driving a 2021 Jeep Trackhawk in a manner consistent with reckless driving and racing on the morning of January 15, when the accident occurred.

The victim who was driving a 2021 Ford Expedition, Chandler LeCroy, had a blood alcohol concentration of .197 at the time of the collision.

“The evidence demonstrated that both vehicles switched between lanes, drove in the center turn lane, drove in opposite lanes of travel, overtook other motorists, and drove at high rates of speed, in an apparent attempt to outdistance each other,” the Athens-Clarke County Police Department said in a release Wednesday morning.

“Evidence indicated that shortly before the crash the Expedition was traveling at about 104 miles per hour.”

According to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jalen Carter, who is 21 years old, initially informed the police that he was roughly a mile away from the collision.

However, he later stated that he was following the vehicle that was involved in the accident.

As per the report, Carter told the police that he was driving alongside the other car at the time of the accident. However, he left the scene and came back 90 minutes later.

Carter was expected to have a press conference in Indianapolis on Wednesday morning but it was called off after the news of his arrest warrants emerged.
