ATLANTA (AP) -Clemson linebacker Cortney Vincent is expected to start in the Chick-fil-A Bowl even though he was arrested on a drunken driving charge last weekend.
The 22-year-old Vincent was pulled over early Sunday by the South Carolina Highway Patrol and booked at the Pickens County jail, officials said.
The junior was charged with first offense driving under the influence, detained for about eight hours and released on a $1,000 personal recognizance bond, jail officials said.
``We'll let the legal process run and then make a decision accordingly,'' Bowden said Thursday during a bowl news conference.
No. 15 Clemson (9-3) faces No. 22 Auburn on Dec. 31 at the Georgia Dome.
It was not immediately clear whether Vincent had an attorney. His phone number was unlisted in the university directory and he did not return an e-mail requesting comment.
A Highway Patrol officer observed Vincent driving suspiciously on state Highway 93 in the city of Clemson and gave him a field sobriety test, patrol spokeswoman Lance Cpl. Kathy Hills said.
The junior has 64 tackles and two sacks in 12 starts this season. Bowden said Vincent is practicing with the team and the coach said he was immediately made aware of the arrest Sunday.
