Holyfield's son arrested on drug charge



University of Georgia running back Elijah Holyfield was arrested on drugs charges on Monday after being found in possession of marijuana, justice officials said.

Holyfield, the son of former world heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield, was detained early Monday by campus police, records from Athens-Clarke County Jail showed.

The 20-year-old was found with less than one ounce of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to his arrest sheet.

Reports said the 20-year-old faces a one-game suspension under University of Georgia rules for any marijuana-related arrests.

Holyfield played in five games as a freshman last season, and rushed for 41 yards and a touchdown in Georgia's recent spring game.
