Komo News is reporting James Montgomery turned himself in and was arrested last night because of an outstanding warrant. The senior running back had a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a driving with a suspended license charge.
Montgomery turned himself in at the Pullman Police Station at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, and was placed under arrest.
He was later released after posting his $1,000 bond.
An arrest is never good, but try not to get too worked up about this. The charge is a simple misdemeanor driving offense and could be a situation where Montgomery forgot to take care of a citation or was a simple misunderstanding.
It's unknown whether Montgomery traveled or will play this weekend against SMU or what, if any, discipline he faces.
Update: Grippi has a quick note on Montgomery.
Montgomery, who was cited for failure to appear on a previous traffic-related misdemeanor charge, made the trip to Dallas and participated in Friday's walk-through prior to today's game at Southern Methodist.
Grippi says the coaches are aware and have handled it. He's expected to play.
