Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette paid his speeding ticket Friday, a day after he was arrested for driving with a suspended license, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

Police cited Fournette for speeding in November. But he failed to pay the ticket, which led to his arrest Friday.

Doug Marrone said earlier Tuesday that the team would not discipline Fournette for what the Jaguars coach called “a mistake.” Marrone relayed a similar tale of his arrest for an unpaid speeding ticket when he was an assistant coach at Georgia Tech.

“I think it is one of those things where the first thing is that you have to obey the law and secondly, if something happens, you have to take it upon yourself to follow up,” Marrone said.

  1. 3 game suspension coming. I know it was only a speeding ticket, but the fact remains he was arrested. Isn’t that all it takes to get Roger drooling for blood?

  2. So he breaks the law by speeding and then fails to pay the ticket which leads to his license being suspended which subsequently ends up getting him arrested. His coach then basically says it’s ok because he just simply “forgot”. Wow talk about a perfect example of not holding someone accountable for their actions. Could you imagine what a real coach like Belichick would have said about this situation

    Probably the same way he handled the Michael Floyd situation….you remember him don’t you? He was arrested for extreme DUI so the Cardinals cut him. Shortly thereafter Belichick signed him.
