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.
