MSU's LJ Scott cleared to play after resolving license issue

In his statement, Dantonio said that Scott now has a valid driver's license and that he "resolved the issue completely".

Michigan State running back LJ Scott has a day in court to face a charge of driving with a suspended license.

The 21-year-old was released on bond, according to the East Lansing Police Department. It was the latest in a long line of driving offenses for Scott, whose license was suspended on August 25 after he failed to pay a ticket for impeding traffic, Secretary of State records show. Scott will play in Saturday's homecoming game against in but Dantonio says his status will be "affected".

Scott's attorney, James Heos, did not return a message seeking comment.

A July 2017 charge for driving on a suspended license, while Scott "ultimately pleaded no contest to the lesser charge of driving without a valid license, court records show".

Scott passed a sobriety test, according to the report, and was charged with driving on a suspended license and driving with an open alcohol container. Scott got caught later in March 2016 when he was speeding, another time in April 2016 after being involved in a auto crash, and yet again in July 2016 by campus police.

This weekend, Michigan State hosts IN in East Lansing. Last week, he ran for a new career-high 194 yards in a 30-27 win over Minnesota.

Yeadon said Scott will be on a six-month informal probationary period where, if he avoids any misdemeanor charges and keeps a clean driving record, his charge of driving with a suspended license this week will be dismissed.
