Report: Suspended Mizzou DE Nate Howard arrested again
For those holding out hope that Nate Howard would return to Mizzou’s defense this season, things just got a little tougher.
Howard, who’s already suspended after being arrested in June for a controlled substance, was arrested again by the University of Missouri Police Department Monday night, according to St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter, for failing to appear for an out-of-county speeding ticket.
His Montgomery County ticket arraignment was scheduled for last Thursday, but he didn’t appear or pay the fine.
The junior defensive lineman’s court date for his drug arrest is scheduled for August 24.
Although Howard doesn’t have great career numbers, the Tigers’ defense certainly could use him in 2017. He really could grow into a disruptive lineman, but at this point, it’s unclear what his future will be.
Howard hasn’t practiced with the team since spring and isn’t on the current roster.
