GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Prosecutors say Clemson safety DeAndre
McDaniel will be accepted into a program for first-time offenders
to resolve charges of aggravated assault and battery.
Pickens County chief prosecutor Bob Ariail said in a statement
Friday that the victim and police officials have agreed to allow
McDaniel into a pretrial intervention program. Terms of the deal
have not been released.
McDaniel was arrested in June. According to a police incident
report, his girlfriend told police he covered her head with a
comforter, punched her and pushed her down a flight of stairs.
McDaniel has remained in school and on the football team since
his arrest. Clemson coach Tommy Bowden said Friday he will make a
recommendation to athletic director Terry Don Phillips next week on
McDaniel's team status.
