COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A USC football player was arrested at a safety checkpoint in Downtown Columbia Friday night.

20-year-old DeVonte Holloman was charged with a DUI, according to a South Carolina Highway Patrol spokesperson.

The checkpoint was part of "Operation Downtown" where the patrol teamed up with several other law enforcement agencies to crack down on DUI's and nighttime seat belt enforcement. It took place at the intersection of George Rogers Blvd and Bluff Road.
