Jaguars’ Lerentee McCray Arrested Following High Speed Chase
Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Lerentee McCray has been arrested following a high-speed chase with police.
According to police documents obtained by TMZ, the-31-year-old NFL player was spotted at 1am on Sunday (January 16) driving at 88MPH in a 50MPH zone.
When police attempted to pull over McCray, he allegedly flipped them the middle finger before taking off at speeds approaching 100MPH. Police say they called off the chase when it was deemed too dangerous to continue the pursuit.
However, approximately fifteen minutes later McCray was once again pulled over by police, who claim he was behaving “erratically”.
McCray was subsequently arrested and charged with felony fleeing. He denies flipping off officers.
After posting his $5,000 bond McCray was released later that morning.
