COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina offensive lineman Na'Ty Rodgers has been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and consumption of alcohol by a minor.

Columbia police were called to a disturbance around 12:30 a.m. Sunday and said they found the redshirt freshman acting in a loud and boisterous manner. A police report said officers noticed a strong odor of alcohol.

Rodgers has been suspended from the team indefinitely, under South Carolina athletics department policy.

He was competing for playing time at right guard. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder from Waldorf, Md., signed with the Gamecocks last year.
