C&F imagines that it will take THE SAVIOR OF THE PROGRAM Stephen Garcia a while to get used to being a South Carolina QB. At least as far as learning the system, adjusting to the SEC and getting in sync with the other players on offense.
As for the off-field side of things, though -- well, Garcia's got that part down pat:
Newly recruited USC back-up quarterback Stephen Garcia was arrested at 12:40 a.m. this morning in Five Points on charges of failure to stop on police command and drunkeness, according to a Columbia Police Department incident report. ...
A "concerned citizen" alerted an officer that Garcia was involved in an altercation behind the Knock Knock Club on Harden Street, where he had been attending a private party, the report said. ...
The officer approached Garcia but the 19-year-old Florida native quickly walked away. The officer asked him to stop, but Garcia ran and tried to hide in the alley.
When the officer caught up to him, Garcia turned toward the officer "in a threatening manner," and the officer immediately "engaged his baton." The officer did not need to use his baton to complete the arrest.
Sorry to interrupt, but C&F loves how the officer "engaged his baton." He imagines it is akin to the United State "engaging its military in Iraq," or Bobby Knight "engaging his hand."
Brutality? Nonsense. We're engaging our batons.
Garcia tried to zip up his pants and fix his belt, and he smelled of alcohol.
Ah, the telling detail. "Tried to zip up his pants." Can't wait to hear that one explained. Or see Spurrier's reaction.
