Spurrier “Arrested” Over The Weekend

In case you missed it over the weekend, Steve Spurrier and the Columbia Police Department had a little fun with the media on Friday.  The Caroilna football coach was handcuffed — as you can watch below — as part of his explanation of how star recruit Jadeveon Clowney was detained, cuffed and frisked outside a Five Points bar last week.

As it turns out, there was a robbery in the area and the perps — always wanted to write that — matched Clowney’s description, dreadlocks and all.  Police spotted the big defensive end, cuffed him and questioned him.  Then they let him go.

“That was a mistaken identity,” Spurrier said.  “I asked him, ‘Jadeveon, you weren’t down there drinking, being loud and making a disturbance?’  He said, ‘Coach, I don’t ever drink.’  He doesn’t drink.  He’s not even a drinker.  He said he went down there with some guys.  Now, I wish he hadn’t gone and hopefully he’s doing to learn not to go down there real soon.

“But, you know, I think he walked in two or three bars.  All the fans started chanting, ‘Clowney, Clowney’ again.  Hopefully he’ll get tired of everybody saying Clowney.  Hopefully out there in (Williams-Brice Stadium), that’s the next time people are going to start chanting ‘Clowney, Clowney.’  That’s the next time I hope to hear that.”

Well handled, Coach.
