Arrest warrant issued for Rams’ Tre Mason for failing to appear in court
An arrest warrant has been issued for Rams running back Tre Mason for failing to appear in court on Monday.
Mason was due to be arraigned for his arrest on March 5, when he was booked on charges of resisting arrest, possession of cannabis, reckless driving and failure to register a motor vehicle.
A judge has set bond at $1,500 for Mason once he’s taken into custody, according to ESPN’s Nick Wagoner.
According to police, Mason was pulled over in March for driving over 75 mph in a 35 mph zone, and “changing lanes and braking abruptly to avoid a near collision.” He allegedly had to be forced to a stop after accelerating away from a pursuing officer, wouldn’t provide his license or name and had to be removed with help from a Taser.
Twelve grams of marijuana were found in the car, and Mason was taken into custody.
Mason, 22, is entering his third season with the Rams after being drafted in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft. He carried 75 times for 207 yards and a touchdown last season.
He played college ball at Auburn, winning SEC Offensive Player of the Year in 2013.
