Clemson cornerback Fred Davis was arrested on Sunday after he allegedly drove 60 miles per hour over the speed limit last month before hitting a mail truck, according to The Associated Press.

Davis, per the report, was driving 115 mph when he hit a mail truck on July 21. The driver of the mail truck “sustained severe injuries,” and “will require months or longer for recovery.”

“The investigation revealed that Davis was traveling at a speed of 115 mph in a posted 55 mph speed zone prior to colliding with the mail carrier vehicle,” the Clemson Police Department said in a statement, in part, via the Greenville News. “This willful and wanton action severely limited his ability to navigate safely through traffic and caused Davis to lose control of his vehicle prior to the collision.”

Davis was not injured. He turned himself into Clemson Police on Sunday, where he was eventually released on bond.

Davis is still with the team, and will be disciplined internally.

The Florida native appeared in seven games for the Tigers last season as a freshman. He made 13 total tackles and had two interceptions.
