Michigan State said in a statement Friday afternoon that running back LJ Scott's status will be "affected" for Saturday's game vs. Indiana, but that he will play and now has a valid driver's license.

Original story

No, this is not a recording. Michigan State running back LJ Scott has been arrested for driving without a valid license again.

According to the Lansing State Journal, the 6-foot-1, 229-pound junior from Hubbard, Ohio, was arrested Wednesday for driving with a suspended license -- the seventh time he has faced the same or similar charge. 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.

Many of the previous charges against Scott were either dropped or reduced. But according to the report, he was found guilty of speeding and driving without a license in March 2016 in an incident near Ashland, Ohio.
