Fournette reportedly arrest for unpaid speeding ticket.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was arrested Thursday afternoon in Jacksonville, following a traffic stop.
The arrest stems from an unpaid ticket dating back to last November. Fournette, 24, was reportedly cited on November 17, 2018 in Neptune Beach for going 37 mph in a 25-mph zone, and his driver’s license was suspended last month.
According to News 4 Jax, Fournette was booked and charged with knowingly driving while his license was suspended. He was later released on $1,508 bond.
Though the arrest isn't anything serious, Fournette has already found himself in the doghouse with the team's executive vice president of football operations, Tom Coughlin. In the final game of the Jaguars' disappointing season, Fournette and fellow running back TJ Yeldon sat by themselves and didn't appear at all interested in the action on the field - and that didn't sit well with Coughlin.
"I am disappointed in the behavior today from T.J. Yeldon and Leonard Fournette," Coughlin said after the 20-3 loss to Houston. "They were disrespectful, selfish and their behavior was unbecoming that of a professional football player."
The former LSU star, who was drafted fourth overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, played in just eight games for the Jags last season, compiling 439 yards on the ground and five touchdowns. He missed most of those games due to injury, but he was also suspended for Jacksonville's Week 13 matchup after fighting with Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson.
The Jaguars finished last in the AFC South with a 5-11 record and will select seventh in the 2019 NFL Draft on April 25.
