S. Carolina's Downey charged with simple assault

COLUMBIA, S.C. Devan Downey, who led South Carolina in scoring last season as a sophomore, has been charged with simple assault.

University spokesman Russ McKinney said the charge stemmed from an argument Downey had with another student on campus last week.

McKinney says the student decided to seek charges Monday after asking police not to press charges when they initially investigated the incident.

Athletic department spokesman Steve Fink said Downey has been suspended from the team per a school policy to immediately suspend any athlete who is arrested.

Downey started every game for the Gamecocks last season, averaging 18.4 points.

He was at the Richland County jail Monday night. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
