COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina punter Sean Kelly has applied for a pre-trial intervention program on a charge of public disorderly conduct while a second charge of malicious injury to property was dismissed by a municipal court Wednesday.

Kelly was arrested and charged earlier this month. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said at the time he would handle Kelly's discipline within the team and that the senior would not miss any time.

Kelly apologized in a statement for his behavior and said he was committed to regaining the trust of his coaches, teammates and fans.

Kelly is a fifth-year senior from Oakland, Florida, who has punted for South Carolina since last fall, joining the Gamecocks as a walk-on. Kelly ranked fourth in the Southeastern Conference with a 44.3-yard average last fall.
