Dashcam Footage of Jaguars Linebacker Lerentee McCray High-Speed Chase, Faces Fleeing Police Charge

Even though the NFL postseason is in full swing, for some, their offseason is off to a fast start.

Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Lerentee McCray was arrested on Sunday morning after a high-speed pursuit with police, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco.

McCray was issued a citation for speeding and was charged with fleeing/eluding police with disregard of safety to person or property, which is a second-degree felony. He was booked into Lake County Jail in Central Florida and was released that morning after paying a $5,000 bond.

“We are aware of the situation and are gathering more information,” the Jaguars said in a statement to ESPN. “We have no further comment at this time.”

According to DiRocco, the Fruitland Park Police Department report stated that a patrol officer attempted to pull McCray over for a traffic stop after seeing him traveling at 88 mph in a 50 mph zone. Instead of complying with the officer, McCray showed the officer a middle finger and kept driving.

McCray has mostly been a special teams player during his seven-year career. He finished with 11 total tackles in 12 games this season, which was his fourth in Jacksonville.
