Jags’ Fournette arrested for driving with suspended license
- Ilona Hunt
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was arrested Thursday for driving with a suspended license and released a short time later.
Fournette paid a $1,508 bond and was freed after spending less than 30 minutes in the Duval County Jail, according to jail records.
His license was suspended last month after he failed to pay or protest a speeding ticket, court records show. Fournette was cited on Nov. 17, 2018, in nearby Neptune Beach for driving 37 mph in a 25 mph zone.
The Jaguars say in a statement that they “are aware of the situation involving Leonard Fournette and are continuing to gather more information. No further comment will be provided at this time.”
It’s the latest issue for Fournette, the fourth overall pick in the 2017 draft who has missed 11 games in two seasons because of injuries and suspensions. Fournette ran for 439 yards and five touchdowns in eight games in 2018.
