Dantonio: LJ Scott to play Saturday despite arrest

A message left seeking comment from James Heos, Scott's attorney, was not immediately returned. On Wednesday, Scott was arrested for his seventh (!) driving infraction since 2016.

Secretary of State spokesman Fred Woodhams said if Scott paid the impeding ticket and also paid a reinstatement fee, he would be able to continue practice driving. Both charges resulted in a $330 fine.

In July 2016, Scott was cited for having open intoxicants in his vehicle, Michigan Secretary of State records show.

In his statement, Dantonio said that Scott now has a valid driver's license and that he "resolved the issue completely".

Scott has four convictions in OH - two for driving without a license, one for speeding and one for reckless operation - and has a non-conpliance suspension status now on his record.

According to the Lansing State Journal, Scott has paid more than $1,300 in fines stemming from his previous incidents.

The Hubbard, Ohio, native has had his share of problems behind the wheel. He failed to pay that ticket and his license was suspended August 25, the department reported. "His status will be affected for Saturday's game, but he will play". He was charged with leaving the scene of a crime and driving without a valid license, but those charges were dropped and replaced with one count of reckless driving.

Scott had a career-high 194 yards rushing and two touchdowns last week in a win at Minnesota and became the 18th player at Michigan State to have 2,000 yards rushing.
