Clemson cornerback Charged

SENECA, S.C. - Clemson starting cornerback Duane Coleman has been charged with simple possession of marijuana following a traffic stop.

Seneca police say the 23-year-old senior from Naples, Florida, was arrested yesterday afternoon when a small amount of marijuana was found in his car.

Coleman was held overnight at the Oconee County jail in Walhalla and was released today on a personal recognizance bond.

Police say Coleman was stopped for failing to use a turn signal and the arresting officer smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. Clemson coach Tommy Bowden says he'll decide on discipline after he talks with Coleman.

The Tigers play Kentucky in the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tenn., on December 29th. Coleman was scheduled to graduate today.
