University of Georgia police allege that 11 student tuition checks were drawn from the UGA Athletic Association account and were presented for deposit or cashed twice, according to a UGA police incident report. The players were “basically double-dipping," by receiving the funds twice, in the words of UGA police chief Jimmy Williamson.

The checks were each in the amount of $71.50 and the total loss is valued at $786.50.

All charges are misdemeanors since they are of less than $500 value.

Matthews, a sophomore from Newnan, is facing three counts. Taylor and DeLoach are facing two counts and LeMay four.
