Tennessee TE Clear faces theft charges

Tennessee tight end Cameron Clear was arrested and charged Tuesday with felony theft of between $1,000 and $9,999, according to the arrest warrant.

He was being held on $2,500 bond at the Knox County Detention Center.

Sources told ESPN.com's Chris Low that Clear has been accused of stealing from teammates.

Tennessee coach Derek Dooley is aware of Clear's arrest and is in the process of gathering more information, according to Tennessee athletic department spokesman Jimmy Stanton.

Clear caught just one pass for 4 yards as a freshman in 2011, but is expected to be one of Tennessee's top tight end targets this fall.
