MUPD officers arrest Mizzou football player Jonathan Nance


University of Missouri police officers arrested an MU football player Friday morning for active warrant out of Miller County.

Jonathan Nance, 22, was arrested by MUPD at 9:30 a.m. MUPD spokeswoman Sara Diedrich said officers pulled over Nance at the intersection of Champions Drive and Providence Point for failure to stop at a stop sign.

A spokesperson with the team said the team is aware of the arrest, and the team will handle it internally. The spokesperson said Nance will be available to play in Mizzou's game against Tennessee.

Diedrich said police records showed Nance had an active warrant for failure to appear in court. Online court documents say the warrant was issued on Aug. 22. The same court records show he was charged in June with a seat belt violation.

MUPD said Nance's Mississippi driver's license was suspended. According to Diedrich, he was issued citations for the stop sign violation and operating a vehicle with a suspended license. Police said Nance was taken to the Boone County jail and has since been released on bond.
