Former Georgia receiver Mikey Henderson was arrested Friday on charges that he sexually assaulted a student, according to the Gwinnett County (Georgia) Sheriff's Department.
Earlier in the day, Henderson resigned his position as a math teacher at Parkview High School in Lilburn, Georgia.
Henderson, who was also an assistant football coach at Parkview, has been under investigation for an alleged inappropriate relationship, the school system said in a statement.
Henderson is best remembered for his 25-yard game-winning touchdown reception in overtime to beat Alabama 26-23 in 2007. The pass was thrown by former Bulldogs and current Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
