Georgia may have lost their third game on the field Saturday night, but insult was added to injury early Sunday morning.

Demetre Baker, a freshman linebacker, was charged with DUI, underage possession of alcohol, and improper driving. Baker was booked by the Athens-Clarke County Police at 4:26 a.m. Sunday, with a bond being set at $2,500.

The Orange Park, Fla., native did accompany the team for its loss to Mississippi State, according to the team's dress-out roster.

Georgia was handled by a 24-12 score in Starkville, Miss., to fall to 1-3 on the year and 0-3 in the SEC.

Baker is now the 10th Georgia football player who has been arrested this year.
