ATLANTA (AP) - Four Georgia football players have been released on bond following their arrests Monday on misdemeanor charges of theft by deception.
University of Georgia chief of police Jimmy Williamson says an investigation found that three players - starting safety Tray Matthews, defensive linemen Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoach - received double payments for stipend checks of $71.50 issued by the Georgia athletic department.
Williamson says the players deposited the paper checks through a mobile device and also cashed the checks at a convenience store.
Wide receiver Uriah LeMay was charged with cashing a roommate's check after the check already had been deposited through a mobile app.
Georgia coach Mark Richt says in a statement Tuesday the matter "will be handled in an appropriate way."
