ATHENS, Ga. — It’s probably not wrong to say a few people who attended college when they were younger did at least one thing they wished they didn’t.
Athens-Clarke County police posted a letter to their Facebook page recently from a former UGA student, whose identity is not revealed. The letter says that the student was arrested for DUI in 2009.
“When I was arrested, I was not a nice person to the folks I came in contact with; and for being a jerk, I sincerely apologize,” the letter states.

The letter goes on to say that the student is now in an Alcoholics Anonymous program and apologizing for past mistakes is part of the 12-step program.
“From now on, I will try to be the best citizen, as well as being extra kind to law enforcement I may come in contact with. I hope you will accept my apology,” the former student wrote in the letter.
“We humbly accept this apology. We are proud of you for taking the steps to get your life going the way you want it. Good news is always appreciated,” the Athens-Clarke County Police Department responded.
