Tennessee sophomore tight end Cameron Clear has been arrested and charged with felony theft.
Clear, who has been working a summer job on Tennessee's campus, was taken into custody this afternoon for questioning and was later charged with the crime.
Officials at Tennessee and the Knoxville Police Department have been investigating a rash of robberies in Gibbs Hall on the Tennessee campus this spring. It's unclear if the charge stems from the earlier thefts or if this is a new incident.
Any theft that involves more than 500-dollars in stolen items results in a felony charge. Just before speaking at the Big Orange Caravan in Atlanta Tuesday night, head coach Derek Dooley told Volquest.com that he was aware of the situation.
"I am aware of the situation but I can't comment and won't comment till I get all the details," Dooley said.
Clear has been booked and is being held on $2,500 bond.
