COLUMBIA (AP) — Former South Carolina and NFL running back Harold Green II has been arrested on charges of assaulting five female high school students.
Multiple media outlets reported that the 46-year-old Green turned himself in to Richland County sheriff’s deputies Monday.
Sheriff Leon Lott said Green is accused of inappropriately touching the Spring Valley High School students who ranged in age from 15 to 17 last month while he was working as a volunteer coach. The students were working as trainers.
Richland District 2 school spokeswoman Libby Roof said Green has not been at the school since the allegations were made.
It was not clear if Green has an attorney.
He played for South Carolina from 1986 to 1989. He played in the NFL for nine seasons.
