Fournette

Leonard Fournette was arrested on Thursday for a seemingly avoidable incident, and the Jacksonville Jaguars can not be happy with their star running back. Fournette, 24, was reportedly cited on November 17, 2018 in Neptune Beach for going 37 miles per hour in a 25-mph zone, and his driver's license was suspended last month.

Fournette was cited for driving 37 mph in a 25 mph zone on November 17, which carried a fine of $204, per the Duval County Clerk of Courts. The a judge suspended his license December 18 and the ticket went to a collection agency March 18, records show.

Fournette reportedly was picked up while driving with a suspended license and booked at 2:30 p.m.in Duval County before posting a $1,508 bond to earn his release.

LA intersection to be named after slain rapper
Nipsey Hussle's family and his partner, Lauren London , have spoken out about the rapper a week after his murder. There will be a public memorial service at STAPLES Center in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, April 11, 2019.

We'll have more on Fournette's arrest once it becomes available. Court records show he did not pay the fine and the case was sent to a collection agency on March 18. "They were disrespectful, selfish and their behavior was unbecoming that of a professional football player".

Fournette, the fourth overall pick in 2017, missed six full games and half of two others with a right hamstring injury in the first eight weeks of the 2018 season and there was mounting frustration inside the organization about the length of his absence.

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.
