Charges Dropped Against Clemson’s Defensive Tackle

Clemson Athletics confirmed that charges against defensive tackle DeMonte Capehart were dismissed. The charges stemmed from a traffic stop where Capehart’s vehicle was seen speeding and spinning its tires. Upon stopping the vehicle, officers found a loaded magazine in the glove compartment and a 9mm rifle in the trunk. Capehart was charged with carrying firearms on school property and failure to exercise due care while driving. However, the charges were dropped after Capehart fulfilled the legal system’s requirements. He has since returned to team activities. Capehart, a junior at Clemson, played in 12 games last season.
