COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia had his suspension for being arrested twice lifted by coach Steve Spurrier.
The school confirmed Tuesday the highly touted freshman, who graduated high school early and enrolled in college to get a jump on learning the offense, attended a team meeting Monday and will be allowed to go to workouts.
``It was coach's decision,'' athletic department spokesman Steve Fink said.
The freshman was arrested Feb. 17 and charged with drunkenness and failure to stop for a police officer. He was suspended after the incident but then reinstated.
He was arrested a second time March 3 on charges of malicious injury to personal property after a professor reported that Garcia had used a key to scratch the man's car.
Garcia applied to a pretrial intervention program rather than face prosecution on two misdemeanor charges. The failure to stop for an officer charge was dropped.
Garcia did not participate in spring practice.
