Clemson football player Fred Davis II found himself in trouble with the law over the weekend after being arrested for driving 115 MPH in a 55 MPH zone. Davis then crashed his 2021 Dodge Charger into a U.S. Mail Carrier truck.

According to TMZ Sports, 19-year-old Davis was charged with reckless driving after turning himself into authorities.

The driver of the mail carrier was seriously injured in the crash. Per the reports, the driver “will require months or longer for recovery.”

Davis will be subject to internal discipline, according to a Clemson spokesperson.

“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,” the spokesperson noted.

Davis played in 11 games as a true freshman last season and was expected to take on a bigger role during the Tigers’ 2021 campaign.

We will have to wait and see how Clemson will discipline Davis for the incident.

The Tigers will open the regular season on September 4 against the Georgia Bulldogs at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
