Top NFL prospect Jalen Carter has had warrants issued for his arrest over a street race that killed a University of Georgia teammate and staff member last month.

Police in Athens-Clarke County allege that the football star raced his 2021 Jeep Trackhawk against the 2021 Ford Expedition driven by recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy, 24, on 15 January.

Devin Willock, an offensive lineman for the Bulldogs, and LeCroy were killed in what police initially called a single-vehicle accident.

The move by law enforcement came after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Carter had also been at the scene of the crash and allegedly told police a changing story about what happened.
