PARTY FOUL: WVU mascot arrested for DUI; Pulled from representing univ.

MORGANTOWN, WV (WOAY) — Mountaineer mascot and Greenbrier Co. native Troy Clemons was arrested early this morning for DUI, according to court records.

He allegedly blew a .126 after being pulled over for going 15 miles over the speed limit, according to the criminal complaint.  The legal driving limit is .08.

Clemons was released on his recognizance.

No word yet if he’ll get to participate in Saturday’s game, which you can watch on WOAY at noon.

West Virginia University released a statement from the Senior Executive Director of the Office of Communications, John A. Bolt:

““West Virginia University is aware of this morning’s arrest of Troy Clemons, currently the Mountaineer Mascot, for speeding and misdemeanor driving under the influence. While the Mountaineer Mascot Advisory Council gathers and reviews all the facts, Troy will not participate in any Mascot-related duties or appearances, including the events surrounding Saturday’s football game. As the alternate Mountaineer, those duties will be handled by Trevor Kiess, a junior accounting major minoring in pre-law and legal studies from Elkins. In addition to any legal outcomes, Troy — as any other WVU student — will be subject to appropriate student conduct proceedings.”
