Compared to some of the other legal issues that college football players have faced of late — including this one — the brief encounter BYU’s Cody Hoffman had with the men in blue earlier this week pales in comparison.
That doesn’t mean we won’t mention it, however, because that’s just how we roll.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Hoffman was booked into the Washington County Jail in Hurricane, Utah, early Wednesday morning on a failure-to-appear warrant. The warrant stemmed from a $90 speeding ticket Hoffman received last November and did not pay.
A sheriff’s office spokesperson told the Tribune that Hoffman had been pulled over yesterday for what was described as a minor traffic violation. It was at that point that the warrant was discovered.
Hoffman was locked up briefly before being released after posting a $352 bond.
Hoffman led all Cougar wide receivers in receptions in 2010 with 42 catches, and his 527 receiving yards were tops on the team. He also tied for the lead in receiving touchdowns with seven.
