COLUMBIA — A former Citadel and Clemson outfielder who hit 25 home runs through his collegiate baseball career has been indicted on federal drug charges.
Bowman native Bradley Felder, 26, pleaded not guilty in federal court Tuesday to the charge of conspiracy to distribute marijuana and the drug known as “Molly,” according to court records.
Felder was initially indicted in July 2015, but was indicted again on March 1. Court documents say federal agents seized nearly $1.8 million from Felder.
Felder was out on $100,000 bond on the initial charge until a court found in February that he was sending threatening text messages to co-defendant Everett “Rhett” Berry, calling Berry a “rat.”
His bond was revoked earlier this year. He is now being held in the Lexington County Detention Center on a federal detainer.
Felder’s attorney, Dick Hartpoolian, could not be immediately reached for comment Wednesday.
Felder played three years for The Citadel. He later transferred to Clemson, where the highlight of his career came when he blasted a solo home run in an NCAA Regional loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks in June of 2012. Felder was named to the All-Region team in that NCAA Regional played at Carolina Stadium.
