Garcia Suspended Indefinitely

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia has been indefinitely suspended from the football program.

Athletic director Eric Hyman announced the suspension Wednesday,  but did not give a reason. Hyman said in a statement that Garcia  exhibited “unacceptable” behavior for a university student-athlete and would not take part in any football activities until further notice.

Garcia told The Associated Press that the suspension did not involve any arrests, nor was it drug or alcohol related.

It is Garcia’s fifth suspension and second this spring since coming to South Carolina in January 2007.
