NY Jets Joe McKnight Arrested For Unpaid Traffic Fines

New York Jets running back Joe McKnight was arrested in New Jersey for outstanding warrants during a routine traffic stop on July 30.

TMZ reports that McKnight was initially pulled over in Hanover Township at around 11 a.m. after police officers noticed his 2010 Mercedes speeding and changing lanes without signaling.

But after the officer ran the routine check, he discovered McKnight had outstanding warrants for failing to pay a $200 fine because he didn’t have proof of insurance, and for failing to pay a $120 fine for a prior basic traffic violation.

The 25-year-old was cuffed and booked then later released after posting $320 bail.
