Chad Kelly escorted out of Clemson facilities

Clemson QB Chad Kelly is reportedly in deep trouble. Today, he was escorted out of the West End Zone facility by Clemson police, and there was a Saturday night incident. This is reported by Roy Philpott of CUtigers.com.

Clemson Head Football Coach Dabo Swinney announced Monday that he has dismissed quarterback Chad Kelly from the school's football team.

"I have dismissed Chad Kelly for conduct detrimental to our program," said Swinney. "He has had a pattern of behavior that is not consistent with the values of our program. I hope he will mature and grow from this and become the man and player I know he can be. I wish him nothing but the best in the future academically and athletically."

Kelly just tweeted: Thats Crazy Someone Would Lie Like That? Wow Is All Imma Say. Good Thing I Got A Great Family And Close Friends.

Apparently, he got into an altercation in the West Zone, and his car ran into former Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers' car, and told her not to file a report. That is the report from a Clemson insider sight. 

(Greenville sportscaster): Multiple sources now, Chad Kelly escorted out of West End Zone by CU Police, waiting to hear if he is still on team.
