COLUMBIA — An incoming South Carolina freshman linebacker has been charged with underage drinking in Columbia.
Police said 18-year-old Edward Muldrow was in the Five Points entertainment district last Thursday when an officer noticed him with a bottle of beer. Authorities say Muldrow tossed the bottle into the bushes when the officer asked him to come over.
Police say Muldrow gave the officer his name, and was charged with underage drinking and littering.
