Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was arrested Thursday afternoon after a traffic stop and charged with knowingly driving with a suspended or revoked license, speeding and improper window tint on the side and rear windows, according to a police report.
Fournette paid a $1,508 bond and was released after spending less than 30 minutes at the Duval County Jail.
The Jaguars released a statement in which they said they were aware of Fournette’s “situation,” are gathering more information and would not have any further comment at this time.
Fournette’s arrest is related to a speeding ticket he received in Jacksonville Beach on Nov. 17, 2018. Fournette was cited for driving 12 mph over the posted 25-mph speed limit, which carried a $204 fine. Court records show he did not pay the fine, and the case was sent to a collection agency on March 18.
In Florida, failure to pay a speeding ticket results in a suspended license.
Fournette was arrested Thursday after a Jacksonville sheriff’s officer pulled over a 2016 GMC Yukon that he clocked at 65 mph in a 45 mph zone. Per the arrest report, when officer H.S. Mullen asked Fournette for his license, Fournette said he “left it at the stadium. I’m a Jaguar player.”
At least he was going fast, and already looks to be in mid season form.
