Full press release from Clemson:
Clemson University police arrest two students
Clemson University police arrested two students on drug-related charges early Friday.
Samuel B. Watkins IV, 18, a freshman communication studies major from
Fort Myers, Fla., and member of the football team, was charged with
possession of a controlled substance and simple possession of marijuana,
Amadou-Tidiane Daniel Dia, 18, a freshman in parks, recreation and
tourism management from Highlands Ranch, Colo., and member of the men’s
soccer team, was charged with simple possession of marijuana.
The men were arrested when police stopped the car Watkins was driving
after an officer saw it scrape against a curb on campus and because the
temporary license tag was not illuminated. When the officer pulled the
car over in a parking lot off Commons Court, he smelled marijuana.
During a search he found marijuana and two pills for which Watkins did
not have a prescription.
The men were arrested and taken to the Clemson City Jail. Watkins was
released Friday morning on a $1,620 personal recognizance bond, and Dia
was released on a $620 personal recognizance bond.
