Clemson cornerback Fred Davis II turned himself in to Clemson police Sunday morning and was charged with reckless driving and booked into the city jail. He later was released on bond. Davis allegedly drove his Dodge Charger into a Postal Service truck on July 21st. The incident occurred on US 123 in Clemson. Davis reportedly was traveling 115 MPH in a 55 MPH zone. The driver of the mail truck suffered serious injuries.

A spokesperson for the Clemson football program released a statement to the media Sunday:

“Fred Davis remains with the program but will be subject to internal discipline. Grounds for internal discipline for misdemeanor charges like this are covered under the terms of the Clemson Student-Athlete Handbook, which says that the head coach can recommend a course of action, and upon concurrence of the designated CUAD administrator, administer sanctions.”

Davis is a sophomore from Jacksonville. Last season he played in 11 games and recorded 13 tackles with 2 pass deflections.
