Ex-Clemson Outfielder Facing Federal Drug Charges

A former Citadel and Clemson outfielder who led the Tigers in its 2012 NCAA tournament bid and hit 25 home runs over his college career has been indicted on federal drug conspiracy charges.

Bradley Lewis Felder, 26, pleaded not guilty this week in Columbia federal court to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of marijuana and the drug known as "molly," court records show.

"Molly," or methylone hydrochloride, is also referred to as MDMA and is a Schedule I controlled substance, according to an indictment.

Felder was initially indicted in July 2015 and released on a $100,000 bond until a court found he was texting threats to co-defendant Everett "Rhett" Berry.

Records allege Felder referred to Berry as a rat, called him an idiot and told him that "he might as well cut (his) own head off."

His bond was revoked on Feb. 1. The next day, federal agents seized more than $1.7 million from Felder, according to court records.
