Rock Hill, SC (WLTX) - A sub shop in Rock Hill could face legal action over a sign they put up outside their store mentioning football star Jadeveon Clowney.

WRHI in Rock Hill reports that a Sub Station II posted a sign that reads, "Hurry in for our Jadeveon Clowney sub--it goes really fast."

The owner of the restaurant, Charlie Ruffalo, told WRHI that he did it as a play on words to reference the former USC standout's recent traffic tickets for speeding. Previous Coverage: Clowney Requests Jury Trial on Speeding Ticket

The store apparently does not have a "Jadeveon Clowney sub" on it's menu.

However, Ruffalo claims he got a call from Clowney's talent agency, Bus Cook Sports, threatening to file an injunction to get the sign taken down. WRHI spoke to Bus Cook, the owner of the agency, who said the use of Clowney's name is illegal.

Ruffalo told the radio station he'll change the sign but Clowney's name will remain.
