Former Baylor University defensive back Ahmad Dixon was arrested on Friday morning in Waco, Texas after being pulled over for going 70 mph in a 40 mph zone with 22 active suspensions on his driver’s license, reports the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Dixon, who now faces a traffic ticket, as well as other traffic violations, was released on $1,000 bond Friday following the incident.

According to police, Dixon’s license suspensions date back to 2011 and are due to insurance issues. Dixon was also cited for driving with an expired vehicle registration.

The former All-America selection at Baylor was chosen by the Dallas Cowboys in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL draft, but was waived by the team early that season.

Dixon played in five games last season for the Chicago Bears and registered three combined tackles. He tried out for the Cincinnati Bengals last week, but is not currently listed on the team’s roster.
