James Montgomery Arrested For Outstanding Warrant

New, 31 comments

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.

Komo has the rest of the report (h/t well you win some you lose some)

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.

If he's held out of the game, Chantz Staden will likely step-in, with Carl Winston and the rest of the Cougar running backs splitting time in the rotation.

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.
