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.”
Police described Lerentee McCray, the 31-year-old Super Bowl champion, as erratic and in an "altered mental status" before his arrest.
He was charged with fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, the report noted.

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.
