Soooooooo close for the NFL.
There were reports earlier this month that the NFL completed its first month in six years without a player getting arrested.
On Monday, word came that there was one arrest late on Wednesday, just hours before the end of September. The culprit: Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, the former Missouri star. He is currently with the Tennessee Titans.
Green-Beckham was pulled over in Van Buren in southeast Missouri (a popular stop for outdoors lovers going on Current River, but I’m guessing he was passing through).
Never miss a local story.
The Tennessean has the rest of the story:
Green-Beckham was pulled over Wednesday night on Highway 60 in Missouri for driving 65 mph in a 55 mph zone. The officer ran the receiver’s license and discovered an outstanding warrant for speeding in Osage Beach, Mo.
The 22-year-old was released after paying $92.48 to settle the ticket. He received a written warning for speeding Wednesday.
The billion-dollar NFL missed some good publicity by $92.48.
