Despite being arrested on Wednesday for driving without a valid license, junior running back LJ Scott has resolved the issue and will play on Saturday against IN, head coach Mark Dantonio said IN a statement Friday.

If Scott is convicted, he could face up to a year in jail since he has been convicted of the same charge earlier this year.

Michigan State running back L.J. That instance, which was in February 2016, resulted in an equipment violation citation and Scott paying $500 worth of fines. Both charges resulted in a $330 fine.

According to Secretary of State records, Scott was also cited on July 19, 2016 in Ingham County for open intoxicants in the vehicle as the driver.

In March 2016, the Ohio State Patrol stopped him for speeding 87 miles per hour in a 70 miles per hour zone and determined he had been driving without a license, according to Ashland Municipal Court records. It was his seventh charge of that nature, according to the Lansing State Journal. According to court records, he eventually pleaded no contest to driving without a valid license, which carries a lesser charge. He failed to pay that ticket and his license was suspended August 25, the department reported.

Numerous previous charges against Scott were either dropped or reduced. Woodhams added that if an individual had suspensions on their license in another state it could prevent them from receiving a license in MI. That charged was dropped for one count of impending traffic.

Scott was back in the lineup last Saturday after missing Week 6, and he was highly effective in the Spartans' 30-27 win over Minnesota.
