USC assistant coach G.A. Mangus was arrested last night in Greenville and charged with nuisance conduct. No details of what lead to the arrest are currently available. Mangus was reportedly scheduled to appear before a judge sometime this morning.
According to one report the incident occurred outside the Ale House in downtown Greenville. Police apparently observed Mangus relieving himself on a street corner and approached him for questioning. They arrested him after he allegedly smelled of alcohol and was slurring his speech and having a hard time answering questions.
Greenville police Sergeant Eric Rampey explains why Mangus was arrested:
Mangus was in Greenville for a coaching convention. He is entering his third season at USC as the Gamecocks quarterbacks coach. He also plays a large role in the offensive play calling and recruiting.
South Carolina athletic spokesman Steve Fink said there was no immediate word on any discipline for Mangus.
