COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A South Carolina linebacker has been arrested on burglary charges.

Columbia police say Angelo Watley is charged with grand larceny, credit card theft and second-degree burglary.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons says Watley was arrested when officers responded to a home around 7 a.m. Sunday. Timmons says two people in the home woke up and found a man inside.

Watley is accused of taking goods valued at more than $2,700, including cash, a laptop computer and an Apple iPad. All of the items were recovered.

Watley was a freshman on last season's team and did not play. He graduated from Peachtree Ridge. It was not clear if he has an attorney.

School policy requires the suspension of players who are arrested.

Since he now has a criminal record UGA can certainly find a place on the team for such a highly skilled young athlete. A rumor is going round that a mini jail is being built at Sanford stadium so the athletic department won't have to travel all over the state to pick up players for the game.
