Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins was arrested on Friday morning for possession of controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
Watkins was arrested early Friday morning after officers saw Watkins' car scrape against a curb, according to a Clemson University Police release. Police reportedly smelled marijuana and found that Watskins had marijuana and two non-narcotic pills that he didn't have prescriptions for on his possession.
The two pills were Adderall and Vyvanase, according to a reporter for the Anderson Independent-Mail. Both possession chargers are misdemeanors and he was released on a $1,620 personal recognizance bond.
It's unclear what kind of punishment Watkins could get for breaking the law. He set ACC freshman records last year with 1,219 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. He is considered by many to be a future Top-10 pick in the draft once eligible.
