Levar M. Jackson, 30, of 980 Blacksburg Highway, Blacksburg, is charged with carrying a firearm on university property, according to a warrant.
Jackson, who was arrested Wednesday, is a Clemson junior and has a student residence in Central, said Clemson spokesman John Gouch.
According to the warrant, a .380-caliber pistol was found in the glove compartment of a car when a suspect was taken into custody for traffic violations on Nov. 19.
A liquor bottle half-filled with gasoline also was found in an inventory of contents of the car, according to the warrant.
The student said his car had run out of gas, said Clemson University Police Chief Johnson Link.
Jackson was released on $5,000 personal recognizance bond, according to university information. No information was available late Thursday on any university sanctions, Gouch said.
