Clemson announces two more arrests

Two more arrests have been made in connection with the vandalism to Clemson's iconic Howard's Rock, the school announced Friday.

Clemson University police charged Michael J. Rogers, 46, of Pisgah Forest, N.C., and Alden James Gainey, 17, of Brevard, N.C., each with felony counts of conspiracy and obstructing justice. Both men appeared in front of a Pickens County magistrate on Friday and were released on a personal recognizance bond of $7,500.

Howard's Rock, the fixture Tigers football players rub before entering Memorial Stadium, was vandalized in early June. The protective casing was destroyed and a chunk of the rock was chipped away.

Last month, Clemson police arrested and charged Micah Rogers, 18, of Pisgah Forest, N.C., with felony malicious injury to animals or personal property valued at more than $2,000 but less than $10,000 and misdemeanor trespassing.
