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.
