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 />

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