Michigan State RB LJ Scott arrested, charged with 7th driving infraction

"He has resolved the matter completely, and has paid a price, both financially and publicly".

Scott was arrested on Wednesday for driving without a license, which was his seventh driving infraction. A message left seeking comment from James Heos, Scott's attorney, was not immediately returned.

Scott has four convictions in OH - two for driving without a license, one for speeding and one for reckless operation - and has a non-conpliance suspension status now on his record. "His status will be affected for Saturday's game, but he will play". Filings show he was found guilty and paid $330 in fines.

Lt. Chad Connelly of the East Lansing Police Department said Scott appeared in court Friday to try to get his license issues resolved.


In April 2016, Scott was involved in a vehicle crash near Cleveland, Ohio. According to a police report obtained by the Lansing State Journal, Scott told officers he and a friend were leaving a party. Woodhams added that if an individual had suspensions on their license in another state it could prevent them from receiving a license in MI.

What might be even more infuriating for Dantonio and the coaching staff is that Scott just posted a career high against Minnesota (194 yards) and seemed to finally emerge as the primary ball carrier over senior Gerald Holmes and fellow junior Madre London.

And in July, Scott was charged near his hometown of Hubbard, Ohio with driving on a suspended license.
