Clemson cornerback Frederick Davis was reportedly arrested on Sunday morning for his involvement in a crash with a U.S. mail carrier last month on July 21.
Davis turned himself into the Clemson Police Department on Sunday morning and was charged with reckless driving. The arrest comes after an investigation revealed that he was traveling in a vehicle that was moving at 115 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. Officers shared that the speed at which Davis was moving caused him to lose control of his vehicle prior to the crash.
The Clemson player then collided with a U.S. mail carrier. The driver of the carrier vehicle suffered severe injuries which will require months of recovery, according to a report from officers.
Davis received a bond hearing on Sunday and was released.
