Noise violation forces Clowney to miss practice

Jadeveon Clowney Jadeveon Clowney

ROCK HILL, SC (WIS) - A court date for a noise ordinance violation is what kept USC's top recruit, Jadeveon Clowney, out of practice Monday.

The USC Sports Information office said Monday that Clowney had a "personal matter" back home in Rock Hill to take care of.

The "personal matter" was a date in court. The freshman was due in court Tuesday to answer to a ticket for violating a Rock Hill noise ordinance.

According to a ticket issued to the 6' 6", 250 pound defensive end, Clowney was driving a 2006 Chrysler when he was pulled over around noon on July 2 at the corner of Saluda St. and Walnut St. in Rock Hill because his car music was too loud.

Clowney was back in his hometown of Rock Hill Monday asking for a continuance before Tuesday's court date. A judge granted a continuance until September 29 to coincide with the ticketing officer's court schedule and Clowney's football training schedule.

To Gamecock fans' delight, the #1 high school recruit was back on the practice fields on Tuesday. 

Fans only have a few more opportunities to see Clowney and the rest of the Gamecocks in action before the season starts. Friday's practice will be the last one open to fans. Saturday's scrimmage and the following practices are closed.

USC opens the season September 3 against East Carolina at 7pm at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
