Dantonio Announces LJ Scott Will Play Against Indiana

LJ Scott accepts plea deal after arrest on driving with suspended license, will play vs. Indiana

Michigan State University running back LJ Scott was arrested Wednesday for driving on a suspended license, the seventh time Scott has faced that or a similar charge.

The 21-year-old was released on bond, according to the East Lansing Police Department. They host IN on Saturday IN East Lansing, and they've figured to lean heavily on Scott during their stretch run IN the Big Ten East.

Scott's attorney, James Heos, did not return a message seeking comment.

According to the report, Scott could spend up to a year in jail if convicted due to at least one prior conviction on the same charge.

All seven of the violations involve either driving without a license or driving on a suspended license and the first violation listed by the LSJ - where you should read the lengthy breakdown of all of Scott's traffic issues - happened in February of 2016.

East Lansing District Court records Thursday show Scott scheduled for a pre-trial hearing November 2.

In April 2016, Scott was involved in a vehicle crash near Cleveland, Ohio.

Scott passed a sobriety test, according to the report, and was charged with driving on a suspended license and driving with an open alcohol container.

What might be worse is that the junior has been cited for the same issue across two different states, including MI and his native Ohio.

In many of those incidents, Scott ended up pleading guilty to different or lesser charges.

Michigan State is scheduled to host IN at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday from Spartan Stadium.

The Hubbard, Ohio, native has had his share of problems behind the wheel.

Scott ran for a career-high 194 yards in last week's win against Minnesota.
