ORANGEBURG, S.C., Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Ryan Hemby, 20, a reserve cornerback at Clemson, was arrested recently and charged with disorderly conduct.
The arrested was first reported by the Orangeburg Times and Democrat. The paper cited a police report which said Hemby, who is from Orangeburg, was taken into custody and charged after an officer witnessed him "relieving himself" on a sidewalk.
The paper reported that, when questioned about his actions, he said, "he had to go bad and could not hold it," according to the report.
Clemson Sports Information Director Tim Bourret said Hemby was not drunk or involved in an altercation.
He faces a court date on Jan. 28, and the paper said Coach Tommy Bowden indicated that Hemby's status for the Tigers' Dec. 23 date in the Tangerine Bowl will be decided after he talks to the player.
The 5-10, 175-pounder has played in five games this season and has three tackles.
