In what can hopefully become a running feature of the site, we're bringing you your daily/weekly player arrest report. For this day, let's talk about South Carolina recruit
Stephen Garcia. Mr. Garcia, the 5th ranked QB in the nation, was arrested at Five Points last night
, Columbia's noted student drinking area. If you've ever been there, its pretty much set up like bar-hotdog stand-bar-bar-bar.
Garcia was arrested for underage drinking and public drunkeness. As the police called out his name, he ran. Garcia is 19 years old, benches 300 pounds and runs a 4.7 40. He's known as a gunslinger on the field, so perhaps he thinks he's Brett Favre. Either way, there is nothing about the accompanying picture that says "I intend to get smashed and go to Denny's at 3 a.m."
This marks the second consecutive Gamecock QB to be arrested for drunkeness in the past year, with
Blake Mitchell being arrested last year for punching a bouncer. Also, the previous year, former QB Syvelle Newton was arrested for stealing a poster from the stadium.
So to the children of South Carolina, we implore you, never play quarterback.
