Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney sent his players off on spring break last week with a word of caution…don’t do anything to embarrass the program or your family. One player apparently did not heed the warning.
According to GoLaurens.com, Clemson cornerback Kaleb Chalmers was arrested on Monday night in Clinton and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of a schedule II controlled substance.
According to the incident report, Chalmers had a quantity of marijuana in the groin area of his shorts and a digital scale in the backseat of his vehicle. While searching his vehicle, officers located five Vyvanse capsules and one Alprazolam pill.
Chalmers, according to the report, was released from jail on Tuesday.
Chalmers is a redshirt freshman at Clemson and a former Shrine Bowler from Greenwood High School. He suffered a shoulder injury prior to spring break but was expected to return to practice after the break.
