A member of the Panthers was arrested for traveling a bit too fast in his car early on Sunday morning in North Carolina.

Running back Cameron Artis-Payne was clocked driving 102 mph in a 65 mph zone around 1:30 a.m. in Gaston County and taken to jail after being arrested. North Carolina state trooper Brian Huffstickler said Artis-Payne was in jail for about 30 minutes before being released on a $5,000 unsecured bond.

“He was very polite and cooperative during the whole process,” Huffstickler said, via the Charlotte Observer.

The Panthers confirmed they were aware of the arrest, but had no further comment to the newspaper.

Artis-Payne was a fifth-round pick by the Panthers last year. He ran 45 times for 183 yards and a touchdown in the regular season and added three carries for seven yards in their playoff win over the Seahawks.
