Mizzou QB gets arrested on traffic warrants

Good news, Georgia. You’re not the only SEC school with a player on the wrong side of the law today.

Backup Missouri quarterback Ashton Glaser (pictured, left) was also arrested over the weekend, although the reason for his legal run-in was nothing more than a traffic violation. How Glaser was arrested is a bit more bizarre.

The Columbia Tribune reports Glaser’s arrest took place early Sunday morning. According to local police, Glaser knocked on the door of a female neighbor for unspecified reasons, at which time an unidentified male came to the door and promptly hit Glaser in the face for, again, reasons that haven’t been disclosed. Witnesses to the incident called the police, but only Glaser was arrested.

But the reserve QB wasn’t arrested because of the alleged “scuffle.” Rather, Glaser was arrested as a result of two out-of-county warrants stemming from an unpaid speeding ticket he received on Nov. 24 of last year.

The warrant for Glaser’s arrest was issued after he failed to appear in court on Jan. 23, and then again on Feb. 9. It’s not the first time Glaser has been arrested for missing court dates, either. The quarterback was arrested in September 2010 for missing a court appearance related to another speeding ticket. Glaser reportedly paid the fine, but the warrant wasn’t removed from his records.

Glaser is currently third on Missouri’s depth chart as the Tigers move forward with spring practice.

    I was going to say it’s relatively easy to get into trouble for traffic warrants in Columbia, which always had completely inadequate student parking. But never mind. Sounds like this kid just gets into trouble. When you have a court date, it’s a good idea to show up. When your neighbor has a temperamental boyfriend, it’s probably not a good idea to show up … depending on what you decide to say when he opens the door.

    It appears Mizzou is making the necessary cultural changes to fit right into the SEC.

    Where is Reno 911 when we need them? I don’t think we need to tear up the book, but just not throw it at every situation. jmo

    I’m sure there would have been some comedy, somewhere to be found at the scene. That’s life, sometimes, and shouldn’t be prosecuted or persecuted. jmo
