Joe McKnight has arrest warrant for failing to appear


Running back Joe McKnight was arrested in July for failing to pay a pair of fines for citations from prior traffic stops. Now he has another warrant out for his arrest for ignoring another traffic-related issue.

According to Seth Walder of the New York Daily News, McKnight failed to show in court for a hearing on Monday stemming from the traffic stop on July 30 that led to his arrest. He received a summons for failing to signal and driving an uninsured vehicle but apparently decided to follow Von Miller’s example and just blow off the hearing altogether. The result was another warrant being issued for McKnight’s arrest.

McKnight was released by the Jets in August and is currently a free agent. He had a tryout with the Green Bay Packers but was not signed. Having more legal problems won’t get him any closer to finding another job.

    Joe’s not a bad guy or even a bad player; he’s just weird and different. Apparently, he has some significant problems with anxiety. Also appeared depressed during interviews.

    Hope he gets it together because his time in the league might be up.

    Didn’t the Jets put a warrant out on him for failure to appear during games?

    Say it ain’t so Joe. Joe, get thee to a police station and remind them to be kind to dumb animals.

    This is exactly the type of problem a marginal NFL talent needs to help set a date for filing his retirement paperwork.

    Driving without insurance is pretty serious in New York State. I think it carries an automatic one year license suspension.
