CLEMSON — Ben Boulware on Saturday was charged with driving under the influence and having an open container of beer or wine in a motor vehicle, according to Greenville County court records. This was his first offense and his blood-alcohol level was less than .10. In South Carolina, it's illegal to operate a vehicle with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or greater.

Boulware, a former linebacker, was a key member of Clemson's 2017 College Football Playoff national championship team and had short stints with the Carolina Panthers and the San Francisco 49ers.
