BREAKING: Michigan State star running back’s future in jeopardy following arrest

1

Here we go again. Another black eye for the Michigan State football program.

According to a report by Christopher Haxel from the Lansing State Journal, Spartans running back LJ Scott was arrested on Wednesday for driving on on a suspended license.

From the Lansing State Journal:

Michigan State University running back LJ Scott was arrested Wednesday for driving on a suspended license, the seventh time Scott has faced that or a similar charge.

Scott, 21, was arrested and later released on a personal recognizance bond, East Lansing Police spokesman Lt. Chad Connelly said Thursday. He declined to comment further because Scott has not yet been arraigned.

The charge carries up to a year in jail if Scott is convicted because he has at least one prior conviction on the same charge, which is typically a 93-day misdemeanor.

The report notes that neither Scott nor his attorney were available to comment and that the Michigan State athletic department did not wish to comment at this time.

Scott, who is a junior at MSU, has rushed for 408 yards and four total touchdowns this season for the 5-1 Spartans.

This weekend, Michigan State hosts Indiana in East Lansing.
