By Paul Zeise, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Pitt senior standout defensive end Joe Clermond was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana Saturday night.

Clermond had attended a hip hop show at Mellon Arena and was riding in a car with several others when the car was stopped by police. A small amount of marijuana was found in the car and Clermond, who is from Tampa, along with the others were charged and released on their on recognizance, according to sources.

Clermond is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing July 30th.

"We are aware of the situation that occurred over the weekend involving Joe Clermond," Pitt spokesman E.J. Borghetti said. "At this juncture we will decline comment and let the judicial process run its course."

Clermond was second-team all-Big East last season after leading the conference in tackles for loss with 16.5 and he was also named to the watch lists for the Bronco Nagurski, Chuck Bednarik and Ted Hendricks awards.
