Two North Carolina men have been arrested in the case of vandalism to Howard’s Rock, an iconic symbol of the Clemson University football program.

Clemson University police charged Michael J. Rogers, 46, of Pisgah Forest and Alden James Gainey, 17, of Brevard each with felony counts of conspiracy and obstructing justice.

The two men appeared before a Pickens County Magistrate today, and each was released on a personal recognizance bond of $7,500.

Police say the rock was damaged earlier this summer on the night of June 2. The protective casing was destroyed and a portion of the rock was chipped away. The incident was partially captured by a video surveillance camera.

Micah Rogers of Pisgah Forest, N.C., was arrested June 28 and charged with malicious injury to animals or personal property valued at more than $2,000, but less than $10,000; and trespassing, unlawful entry into enclosed places.

Thank the good Lord I will never encounter you socially. Your continual pro-Clemson comments annoy me to no end. My bet is you are not from SC by birth. I would also doubt you commonly have the occasion to associate with well-to-do people, if you get my drift. Please confine your insipid remarks to the captive audience I have a feeling you bore regularly.

I heard Dabo himself was going to be charged as well. When asked about the rock Dabo said “I told you before, I will leave no stone unturned until I find a way to beat Spurrier”

Well how about that. They’ll change people for stealing a piece of a stupid rock but not football players for beating up women and smoking pot. That about says it all.
