Signee James Thompson arrested...
 
South Carolina basketball signee James Thompson was arrested Tuesday and taken to jail on charges of aggravated battery and domestic abuse by battery. The Louisiana native, who signed with the Gamecocks at the end of May but hasn’t yet reported to campus, was released from East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Wednesday after posting $10,000 bail.

“We are aware of the serious charges regarding James Thompson and are gathering more information,” read a statement from a USC athletic department spokesperson on Wednesday. “We will have no further comment at this time.”

Watch westillsuck add that to "the list" even if he isnt here yet or never comes. That said if he does still come all,we have to do is post a comment he doesnt like on instagram and we might have an attitude down low.

This is terrible. It goes without saying that if these allegations are proven true, Thompson has no place at USC

If true, and two incidents seem to give it credence...I would rather lose with good kids than win with bad ones.

If these charges are proven true, then I don't want James Thompson on this campus, at this school or on our basketball team.

Fully agree.
Winning is important, but I'd rather have solid character men and women represent us.

I have a feeling Frank Martin has no patience for this, especially for guys who allegedly beat up on women.

He wouldn't make it to campus. I can't remember the guys name but I think he was a 4* running back that was caught selling weed, and never stepped foot on campus.

I believe he was raised by a single mother...so I'm guessing zero tolerance on something like this if proven guilty.

Had a guy named Kerry Bonds that choked his GF...got kicked off the team soon thereafter. Thompson needs to get it together...or spend his life in prison.
