Lexington, SC — Lexington County Sheriff’s Department narcotics officers have made two arrests, including a former University of South Carolina football player, after a month-long undercover investigation.

Demetris Summers and Latesha Boykin have been arrested on multiple drug and weapons charges. Both Summers and Boykin face charges for trafficking and distributing drugs, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, possession of a stolen weapon and unlawful conduct toward a child.

Officers executed a search warrant at the couple’s apartment in the River Oak apartment complex on Friday. Summers and Boykin were arrested without incident a short time later.

Three children who reside with the couple have been placed in protective custody.

Summers was a star running back for the Gamecocks from 2003 to 2005. He was dismissed from the team for team violations involving marijuana.
