Greenville, SC (WLTX) -- University of South Carolina Quarterbacks Coach G.A. Mangus was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with nuisance conduct.

According to police, Mangus, 42, was arrested after he was found urinating on the street near Carolina Ale House on Main Street in Greenville at about 1:30 a.m.

Two officers stopped Mangus when one of them noticed a wet spot near where he was standing, according to an incident report from the City of Greenville Police Department. Police said Mangus was leaning on a railing next to the street curb, facing the street, while urinating on the curb and roadway.

Officers said they could smell alcohol on Mangus, and noticed that he was "unsteady on his feet" and his eyes were "dilated and glazed over." Related Coverage: USC Suspends G.A. Mangus After Arrest

Police said Mangus's speech was slurred and he would not provide "straight answers" to officers' questions, including who he was with earlier in the day.

Mangus was taken to jail, where he was issued a citation and kept on "a temporary commitment." He was released from jail Tuesday afternoon.

Mangus, USC quarterback Stephen Garcia's coach, has worked with Head Coach Steve Spurrier for three years with the Gamecocks.

Before working at USC, Mangus was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Middle Tennessee State, where he worked with former Gamecock and longtime Clemson assistant coach Rick Stockstill. 

In February, Mangus was rated one of the Top 25 recruiters by ESPN, Rivals.com and 247sports.com.
