South Carolina wide receivers Dion Lecorn and Matt Clements were suspended indefinitely from the team after a run-in with the law on Sunday.
Lecorn was arrested on Sunday and spent the night in jail. Clements was with Lecorn and was not charged or arrested, but it was revealed he has a bench warrant out for his arrest from his hometown of Naples, Fla.
USC coach Steve Spurrier released a statement Monday, saying each was barred from all team activities.
Lecorn, Clements and John Casselberry, a friend of Clements, were in a car that was detained by police on Sunday. A small amount of marijuana was found inside the car and was claimed to be Lecorn's.

Lecorn was arrested and charged with one count of simple possession while Clements and Casselberry were not charged. Lecorn was released from jail on Monday.
The arresting officer discovered a warrant was out for Clements' arrest after Clements did not appear for a court date. The Collier County (Fla). Sheriff's Office issued the bench warrant but said Clements would not be extradited to Florida.
According to another arrest report from Naples, Clements, Casselberry and three others were arrested on Dec. 31, 2007, after police found them in a car with alcohol, apparently on their way to a party.
Clements was arrested and charged as a minor in possession of alcohol. He was released after posting a $2,000 bond.
The bench warrant was issued when Clements failed to appear for his court date.
Lecorn, a rising sophomore, became the Gamecocks' No. 2 wide receiver last season, starting six of the last eight games and catching 27 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns. Clements redshirted his 2007 freshman year but was mentioned by Spurrier two weeks ago as one of a crop of speedy receivers who would either rotate through the offense this season or perhaps try a few snaps at defensive back.
Spring practice begins on March 19. USC's Garnet and Black Spring Game is set for April 19.
