Gamecocks’ Clowney Pulled Over Again For Speeding


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has been pulled over again for going at least 25 mph over the speed limit.

Columbia Police say Clowney was stopped around 10:30 a.m. Thursday going 84 mph in a 55 mph zone on Interstate 26 near Interstate 126, about 5 miles from the Gamecocks’ campus.

The traffic stop happened about an hour before the Gamecocks flew to Florida for the Jan. 1 Capital One Bowl against Wisconsin.

It’s Clowney’s second ticket in three weeks. On Dec. 7, state troopers say Clowney was going 110 mph in a 70 mph zone.

Drivers pleading guilty for going at least 25 mph over the speed limit in South Carolina get six points. State law allows a license to be suspended after 12 points.
