Rodgers suspended from team after disorderly conduct, underage drinking citations
South Carolina offensive lineman Na’Ty Rodgers was charged with disorderly conduct and consuming alcohol underage just past midnight on Sunday. The redshirt freshman has been suspended from the football team.
Officers from the Columbia Police Department responded to a call at Pour House, a Five Points bar, at 12:30 a.m. Sunday. Rodgers was “acting in a loud and boisterous manner,” according to police.
Rodgers was cooperative with officers, who smelled a “strong odor of alcohol” when they spoke with him.
Rodgers is described as having a “good opportunity” to start at right guard next season according to GamecocksOnline.com. He was an Under Armour All-American in high school and was ranked the sixth-best high school player in Maryland before graduating in 2013.
