WCTV is reporting that Florida State senior cornerback Greg Reid was arrested Tuesday night in Georgia for driving on a suspended license and possession of marijuana. He has bonded out.
Reid, who is originally from Georgia, is a starter and the second best corner for the Seminoles.
Analysis: A wait and see approach on this is the way to go.
Many football players (and students) cannot afford to pay their tickets and decide to take their chances driving with a suspended license. I do not know the reason why Reid's license was allegedly suspended, but this is just as much of an issue with the general student population as it is with football players. I have also not seen the police report, and the Lowndes Co. Sherriff's office said that it is not available.
Neither charge appears to be a felony. I highly doubt this impacts Reid's future with the Seminoles. If the charges are real and stick, he could be suspended in one or both of Florida State's two cupcake openers against Savannah State and Murray State.
