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.

USC’s Clowney Welcomed To Columbia With A Frisking

Early this morning, the nation’s top football signee Jadeveon Clowney was frisked by Columbia, South Carolina police in the Five Points area of town.

A spokesperson for the Columbia PD told WIS-TV that they do have reports of officers being called to “a couple of bars” in the Five Points district last night, but those reports are not yet available.

According to Travis Haney of The Charleston Post & Courier, Clowney was not detained and the reason for the search was not immediately known.  Carolina students — aware of who Clowney is — “were booing and becoming upset” as their star signee was being frisked outside a bar called The Salty Nut Cafe.

Clowney is not yet officially enrolled at South Carolina.

Soon after her son picked South Carolina, Josenna Clowney told the following:  “I really like Clemson.  I think that’s the best place for him.  I’m not disappointed he’s going to South Carolina.  I need to make sure he knows that there’s a lot of stuff to get into and he don’t need to be down there (in Columbia) fooling around.”

Wonder what she’s thinking this morning?
