Charges dropped against USC Football Recruit Victor Hampton

In February, police charged Victor Hampton, 18, with being a minor in possession of alcohol, after they say he brought booze to Darlington High School.

Hampton initially requested a jury trial, but Darlington City Attorney Bill Howle says charges were dismissed last month.

Howle tells us they believe this was a one-time, isolated incident and Hampton appears to be sorry about what happened.

He says it's not unusual for them to drop charges against young people in a situation like this to give them a second chance.
