Columbia, SC (WLTX) - An incoming freshman linebacker for the USC football team has been arrested on a charge of underage drinking.
Edward Muldrow, 18, was booked on a charge of underage drinking and littering.
An arrest warrant states that back on July 14, a Columbia police officer saw Muldrow with a bottle of beer in Columbia's Five Points. The report says the officer asked Muldrow to stop and to come toward him, and that Muldrow threw the bottle in the bushes.
The report says Muldrow cooperated and gave his name. According to the incident report, the officer smelled alcohol on Muldrow and said the player "had reddened eyes and slurred speech."
Muldrow was then taken to the Richland County Detention Center.
University policy says players are automatically suspended after an arrest.
Muldrow is from Snellville, Georgia.
