We’ve done some digging regarding Tuesday’s arrest of Falcons starting safety William Moore on charges of speeding, driving with a suspended license, and failure to appear.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Moore had a previous speeding ticket that had not properly been resolved.  That resulted in the failure to appear in court and the suspension of his license.  The situation was discovered when he was pulled over Tuesday for speeding, after leaving a workout facility.

According to the source, Moore resolved a speeding ticket several months ago, not realizing at the time that there was a second unresolved ticket.  He never paid the other ticket, setting in motion the chain of events that put him behind bars for more than seven hours on Tuesday.

Look for the situation to be cleared up quickly, with no conviction or guilty plea.
