COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has
suspended starting defensive end Clifton Geathers after he was
arrested over the weekend.
Columbia police spokesman Brick Lewis said Geathers was charged
with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and public drunkenness.
Police arrested Geathers early Sunday after the 6-foot-8, 281-pound
lineman was involved in a fight outside a nightclub.
Also on Sunday morning, freshman running back Jarvis Giles was
involved in dispute with a woman in a dorm lobby where campus
police were called. A university spokeswoman said Giles and the
woman told officers it was a misunderstanding.
There were no arrests, although police were continuing to investigate.
