ATHENS -- Police say a University of Georgia football player is facing a charge of aggravated assault, a felony.<br />
University of Georgia Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor was arrested early Tuesday after an altercation with his girlfriend at McWhorter Hall on the campus.<br />
Williamson tells The Associated Press that officers found his girlfriend with marks around her neck.<br />
The woman wasn't immediately taken to a hospital, but Williamson said he understands that she sought medical treatment later Tuesday.<br />

Williamson said a new Georgia law allowed officers to file the felony charge.

Former Gainesville High standout Deshaun Watson threw for two touchdowns, ran for a third, and Clemson's defense stopped DeShone Kizer on a tying two-point conversion as the 12th-ranked Tigers held on to beat No. 6 Notre Dame 24-22 on Saturday night.
Jake Coker ran the offense to perfection, the defense turned in a dominating performance, and No. 13 Alabama even got a touchdown from its special teams Saturday in a 38-10 rout of No. 8 Georgia that re-established the Crimson Tide as a force in the national race.
