Aside from Jadeveon Clowney’s two speeding tickets last season, South Carolina players stayed completely out of trouble. Tanner McEvoy, who transferred to Wisconsin, was the last Gamecock arrested in July of 2012.

However, early Sunday morning, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Na’ty Rodgers was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and consumption of alcohol by a person under 21. He’s suspended from the team indefinitely, per South Carolina policy.

Per 247Sports, officers responded to a civil disturbance. Rodgers was allegedly acting in a ‘boisterous manner’, and officers detected an alcohol smell. Rodgers has been competing for the starting right guard job with Mike Matulis this spring.
