LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) - Authorities in Lexington County say former South Carolina running back Demetris Summers has been arrested on drug, gun and child-conduct charges

The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department says the 31-year-old Summers was charged Friday with trafficking and distributing drugs, possessing a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, possessing a stolen weapon and unlawful conduct toward a child.

It’s not known if Summers has an attorney.

Also arrested on similar charges was Latesha Boykin. The department said the couples’ apartment was raided Friday. The three children living there were placed in protective custody.

Summers was one of the country’s top recruits when he rushed for 9,076 yards and 120 touchdowns from 1999-2002 at Lexington High. Summers spent two years at South Carolina before he was dismissed by coach Steve Spurrier.
