Former Clemson QB Chad Kelly alledegly assaults bouncer, threatens gun violence.

Jim Kelly's nephew is in trouble with the law. Chad Kelly, a former Clemson quarterback who gave a verbal commitment to Ole Miss, was arrested early Sunday after getting into an altercation at a bar and restaurant in Buffalo, NY.

According to The Buffalo News, Kelly and another individual reportedly had been ordered to leave the establishment earlier in the evening. The pair returned later, at which time Kelly allegedly assaulted a bouncer who was trying to kick them out again.

Kelly also allegedly threatened bouncers trying to restrain him, shouting “I’m going to go to my car and get my AK-47 and spray this place.”

Kelly faces charges of "third-degree assault, second-degree harassment, second-degree menacing, resisting arrest, fourth-degree criminal mischief and second-degree obstructing governmental administration," among other charges. He was released from jail without bail. 
Kelly was released from the Clemson football program for what ESPN described as "conduct detrimental to the program." He most recently played for East Mississippi Community College, which won the 2014 National Junior College Athletic Association title earlier in December.
