Arrest made in Howard’s Rock vandalism

CLEMSON – Clemson University police have arrested Micah Rogers of Pisgah Forest, N.C., in connection with the case of vandalism to Howard's Rock, the iconic fixture Clemson football players rub prior to entering Memorial Stadium.

Rogers, 18, was charged with one felony: malicious injury to animals or personal property valued at more than $2,000, but less than $10,000; and one misdemeanor: trespassing, unlawful entry into enclosed places.

Howard's Rock was vandalized earlier this month. The protective casing was destroyed and a portion of the rock was chipped away.

Capt. Eric Hendricks said the vandalism occurred the night of June 2 and was captured partially by video surveillance cameras. The suspect also was identified by a witness.

The broken portion of the rock has not been recovered yet, and the investigation is ongoing.

Rogers appeared in Clemson University Municipal Court this morning and was released on personal recognizance bond of $5,470.

“On behalf of the athletic department and the football coaches and players, I want to thank the Clemson University Police Department, the State Law Enforcement Division and the Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor’s Office for acting in a swift, thorough manner with regards to the vandalism to Howard’s Rock,” said Clemson Athletic Director Dan Radakovich. “We appreciate the efforts of everyone involved in this case.”
