North Carolina man convicted of damaging case that surrounds Clemson football's Howard Rock


PICKENS, South Carolina — A North Carolina man has been convicted of malicious damage under $2,000 of the case that surrounds Clemson football's Howard's Rock.

Micah Rogers was found not guilty of the more serious charge of grand larceny. He was sentenced on Thursday to a fine of $1,000 and 30 days in jail. The judge suspended that sentence if Rogers completes 25 days of community service and pays a $1,700 fine.

Prosecutors said Rogers, of Pisgah Forest, had damaged the case surrounding the rock at Clemson's Memorial Stadium and chipped off and stole a piece of it in June 2013.

The rock sits on a pedestal at the entrance to the Tigers' football stadium. The coaches and players touch it before running down the hill before the start of games.
