Ex-Jefferson QB Garcia In Trouble Again

Former Jefferson quarterback Stephen Garcia, who holds Hillsborough County career marks in passing yards and touchdown passes, has found trouble for the third time since signing with the University of South Carolina. Here is a story of Garcia’s latest run-in, courtesy of The Associated Press.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina’s highly touted freshman quarterback has been charged with underage drinking and paid a fine, marking his third run-in with police in about a year.
The State newspaper of Columbia reports that Stephen Garcia paid a $257 fine Monday after he and two other football players were charged with underage drinking over the weekend.
The 20-year-old Garcia was arrested in February 2007 and charged with drunkenness and failure to stop for a police officer.
He was arrested about a month later on charges of malicious injury to personal property after a professor reported that Garcia had used a key to scratch the man’s car.
An athletic department spokesman did not immediately know what Garcia’s status with the team was. The spokesman says coach Steve Spurrier will be available Monday night after practice.
