Starting South Carolina P Kelly arrested; won't miss time

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina coach Will Muschamp says punter Sean Kelly won't miss any game time after being arrested on charges including disorderly conduct and trespassing.

State Judicial Department records show that Kelly was arrested Friday and released on a personal recognizance bond of $2,125.

Kelly was charged with public disorderly conducting, causing malicious injury to a tree or house, and trespassing upon real property with an injury value of $2,000 or less.

Muschamp said Sunday that Kelly would not miss any time for the arrest and any punishment would be handled within the team.

Kelly is a fifth-year senior from Oakland, Florida, who has punted for South Carolina since last fall, joining the Gamecocks as a walk-on. Kelly ranked fourth in the Southeastern Conference with a 44.3-yard average last fall.
