Offseason Crime: Hokies Dismiss Linebacker Telvion Clark

While most of us were dodging pieces of exploding brackets and fixating on the NCAA tournament, there was a little trouble down in Blacksburg. 

Virginia Tech linebacker Telvion Clark was arrested over the weekend for public intoxication and swearing and subsequently dismissed from the football team, coach Frank Beamer announced in a short news release Tuesday.

Clark was officially dismissed for "violations of team policies.”

Clark, a rising junior from Norfolk's Granby High School, was arrested in Blacksburg early Sunday for public intoxication and swearing, a Class 4 misdemeanor that is punishable by a maximum fine of $250. He has a May 3 court hearing in Montgomery County General District Court in Christiansburg.

The linebacker had previous discipline issues. He was one of six players (The Greyhound Six) sent home early on a bus for missing the team's New Year's Eve curfew before the 2011 Orange Bowl.

The 6-foot-1, 228-pound Clark finished his Hokies career having played in only six games. He made six tackles.
