NC State guard Trevor Lacey was arrested early Friday morning because he missed his April court date for a speeding ticket, according to The News & Observer. Lacey was stopped by campus police on Friday because he was riding a moped without a helmet, so now he's got that in addition to the unresolved speeding ticket.
Here is the statement on the subject from NCSU:
"We are aware of the situation involving Trevor, and are awaiting the final dispositions of both the legal and university processes," said Fred Demarest, the associate athletic director for communications, in a statement released by the school.
Hard to figure how something like this happens ... I mean, did he just totally space on his court date? Did his lawyer screw up? I'm guessing NC State didn't know about the speeding violation, because I can't imagine that between the coaches and support staff, he'd have gotten into this mess.
As for any implications for the season, I could see a short suspension because Lacey was being a dummy here, but that's about it. Just gonna have to wait and see.
On another note, I wish Lacey would follow Lennard Freeman's lead and ride a regular ol' bike around campus. But at least he's not riding around one of those scooters that seems to guarantee injury for any college football player who's got one.
