CHUCK ALLEN POPPED FOR DISORDERLY CONDUCT

By FITSNEWS  ||  A member of the University of South Carolina board of trustees was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with disorderly conduct.

The board member – Chuck Allen – was arrested at 3:00 a.m. EST by sheriff’s deputies in Anderson County, S.C.

So far, no news outlet has posted anything about Allen’s arrest online – or even mentioned that he was arrested.

In fact prior to this story posting, the only evidence Allen’s arrest even took place was an 18-second announcement on an evening newscast from Upstate television station WYFF TV 4 (NBC – Greenville/ Spartanburg, S.C.).  FITS has also been unable to obtain his case or arrest record on Anderson County’s website.

“There’s a news blackout on this story,” one source told FITS.

Appointed to the USC board in 2008, Allen’s current term ends in 2016. He serves on USC’s health affairs committee, intercollegiate athletics committee, student-trustee liaison committee and ad hoc committee on strategic planning.

Allen – an attorney in Anderson, S.C. – was released on his own recognizance.

Here’s his mug shot …
