Let’s check in and see how Derion Kendrick’s career reboot is progressing…
Former Clemson football player Derion Kendrick was arrested Friday morning on gun and drug charges, according to a report from The State.
Kendrick, a senior cornerback who was kicked off the team by head coach Dabo Swinney in February, was found asleep in a car with a gun in his lap around 3 a.m. by Rock Hill police officers, court records obtained by The State showed. He also had a small amount of marijuana, which led to a simple possession charge.
The gun charge is considered a misdemeanor, and he was taken to the Rock Hill jail, where he appeared in court and was later released on a personal recognizance bond.
Gun and drug charges, eh? Well, at least he didn’t have a domestic assault charge thrown in.
I would assume this means Athens’ interest in Kendrick has significantly cooled. I’m sure there are still places who want to help a good young man straighten out his life, though.
