Clowney Gets Attorney to Fight Speeding Tickets

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Former USC football star, Jadeveon Clowney, has hired an attorney to help him fight a speeding ticket he received in December.

The SC Highway Patrol cited Clowney for driving 110 miles per hour in a 70mph zone on I-77 in Winnsboro. Instead of appearing in court on Thursday, Clowney's attorney requested a jury trial.

"I am hopeful that the arresting officers will treat him like other college kids who do stupid things and cut him a break by reducing the tickets," said Clowney's attorney, Pete Strom.

Clowney received two speeding tickets in a matter of weeks. Columbia Police gave him the second ticket as he was heading to campus to catch the bus for the Capital One Bowl. He was cited for going 84 miles an hour down I-26.

"I had a frank conversation with him and I told him that what he did was wrong and it's dangerous. It was reckless and he could have hurt somebody. And he was very apologetic about it," Strom said.

Strom says Clowney has already left for training for the NFL draft and should be heading to court within the next month.
