Michigan State running back LJ Scott was arrested for driving with a suspended license Wednesday, according to Christopher Haxel of the Lansing State Journal.

April 2016 - Scott was involved in a crash in OH and drove off. 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.

Former Hubbard standout and current Michigan State football player LJ Scott is in trouble with the law again. A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for 9:15 a.m. on November 2. That eventually was changed to an equipment violation for which the athlete paid at least $400 in fines, according to court filings.

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. Both charges resulted in a $330 fine.

This weekend, Michigan State hosts IN in East Lansing.

And in July, Scott was charged near his hometown of Hubbard, Ohio with driving on a suspended license. That charged was dropped for one count of impending traffic.

In one case he was initially charged with leaving the scene of an accident and ended up pleading to one count of reckless driving, a minor misdemeanor.

It's unclear what actions the Spartans will take against Scott. He is coming off a career game against Minnesota in which he totaled 194 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. The Spartans play Indiana Saturday in East Lansing.
