Javdeveon Clowney has been ticketed for speeding…..again. That is the second time this month and the moving violation could cost the potential first round draft pick his driver license.
According to The State, Clowney was flagged for illegal driving procedure on Thursday morning by the Columbia South Carolina Police Department.
This time Clowney was going 84 in a 55 MPH zone, a ticket that reportedly cost the Gamecock Defensive End $355 dollars. And that’s not all because of the accumulated points, Clowney faces possible suspension of his driver’s license.
Steve Spurrier, Clowney’s head coach for at least another week, commented on the latest driving episode during a press conference saying “at least he will have enough to pay for it n another week or so.”
Clowney is expected to declare for the NFL draft after the Gamecocks appearance in the Capitol One Bowl.
The old ball coach continued, commenting on the need for his defensive end to have some additional instruction behind the wheel.
Classic Spurrier on Clowney speeding. “He needs to go to driving school. Hopefully they’ll send him there after the bowl game.” #Priceless

Don’t expect Jadeveon Clowney’s latest brush with the police to effect his game day status. Apparently the speeding ticket does not qualify as a violation of team rules as their was no suspension announced.
Sports Mashup doesn’t condone speeding. However it is somewhat refreshing that he wasn’t ticketed for speeding and not driving under the influence. Clowney may have a need for speed but at least he doesn’t have a need for weed.
