Back in late January, news surfaced that star Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett had been arrested in Dallas, Texas around 6AM after reports were made of a man banging on random doors in Old East Dallas.

Sure enough it was Bennett, and officers determined he was intoxicated, and he was sent off to the detention center.

Now, we’re finally getting the bodycam footage that was obtained by TMZ of that night.

When officers arrive, you can tell that Bennett is visibly frustrated and annoyed by their arrival.

Once they get him to the squad car, you can hear the QB say:

“Reputation ruined. Everything I worked for 20 years, ruined. But ya’ll boys just looking out for me, aren’t ya? Thank you sir.”

Bennett also added that he was in Dallas training. He was then asked by the cops if he lived in the area, and Stetson said former Bulldog offensive lineman Owen Condon did.

As he got in the squad car, you can hear him say:

“The door shut and somebody fell asleep. And now five million people gotta see it, don’t they? Thank you, boys, for looking out for me. You guys are the best.”

After the arrest, Bennett admitted that he was remorseful for letting loved ones down, according to Pro Football Talk:

“It was a mistake that everybody’s aware of.

I understand why that can’t happen. I’ve talked to coaches about it, talked to GMs. I’ve apologized to my family. That’s who I felt worse about. I felt like I let them down because no matter where I go now.”

Bennett rounded out his career at Georgia with a dominating National Championship victory over TCU, 65-7, back in January.

He also had a solid NFL Combine performance, and is likely to get drafted in the upcoming NFL Draft.
