    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee tight end Victor McClure was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after police officers said he pushed an instructor, grabbed a student and tried to run away.

    McClure, a 6-foot-4, 310-pound senior from Hixson who started in seven of 13 games last season, was arrested Thursday afternoon by UT police after a disturbance at the student recreation building.

    He was released from the Knox County jail by posting $1,000 bond, according to court records.

    Officers said John Hodges, an associate professor of religious studies, told them McClure had shoved him and said, "Hey Pop, want to find Jesus," according to the police report.

    Officers found McClure yelling at someone, and then McClure told the officers they needed to respect him and then walked away when they asked him to step outside to talk, the report stated.

    McClure ran around the building's lobby and "began to take his shorts off and throw them in the air. Then he tried to remove his underwear," the officers said in the report.

    While the officers escorted McClure away, he grabbed UT student Courtney Keck by the arm and tried to pull her down the stairs. He confronted another student, Kristina Bennett, and "kept asking her if she loved and respected him," according to the report.

    The officers handcuffed McClure and took him to the jail, where he got away from two more officers and "ran full speed into a door," the report said.

    Athletic department officials were investigating the incident and had no immediate announcement about McClure's status on the team, spokeswoman Tiffany Carpenter said. Coach Phillip Fulmer did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

    An arraignment was scheduled for July 21.

    Guy obviously wasn't right in the head.

    An on-campus incident brings Larry Foster and his purse snatching in the LSU Quad to mind, though I don't think he ever tried to strip naked when the cops found him. :shock:

    What a load, read this garbage ...

    Vol's apology: A University of Tennessee football player who was arrested last week after allegedly shoving an instructor, grabbing a student and trying to get away from police apologized Tuesday and said that he has had a "very thorough medical evaluation."

    Tight end Victor McClure, a 6-4, 310-pound senior-to-be who started seven of 13 games last season, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest June 24 after an incident that afternoon at the student recreation building.

    Coach Phillip Fulmer said in a statement issued Tuesday that McClure will remain on the team and thanked UT faculty, administrators, players and coaches for "their concern and understanding of this medical condition."

    Neither McClure nor Fulmer gave details about the medical condition.

    He is not used to Clean Air

    He,Victor McClure, will be ok, and probably, will play in all of the games this year . The Vols need every player !! I think I made a mistake when I said that The Vols would play LSU in the SECCG . It looks like the Vols are not gonna be in the top 20 . So I guess it will be LSU and Georgia . GEAUX TIGERS !!!
