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.
