Suspended Missouri junior defensive end Nate Howard was arrested Monday on a bench warrant.
Monday’s arrest was unrelated to that case.
Howard was cited by the Missouri State Highway Patrol on March 28 in Montgomery County, Mo., for speeding 6 to 10 mph over the posted limited.
Never miss a local story.
He was due in court Aug. 10 to contest the speeding ticket, which could have been avoided by sending a money order or paying the $121 fine by credit card over the phone.
Instead, Howard didn’t pay the fine and didn’t appear in court, so a warrant was issued for his arrest for failure to appear.
He was arrested Monday night by University of Missouri police after being pulled over at 8:19 p.m. for failure to stop at a posted stop sign.
According to Mizzou athletics policy, a player is automatically suspended when facing a felony charge, so Howard hasn’t participated in training camp and there has been no change in his status today, a team spokesman said.
His next scheduled appearance in that case is Aug. 24 in Boone County Court in Columbia.
