COLUMBIA — Missouri graduate transfer wide receiver Jonathan Nance was arrested Friday morning by the University of Missouri police department after a traffic stop for failure to stop at a stop sign revealed an outstanding warrant.

Nance, originally from Gulfport, Miss., transferred from Arkansas in December of 2018. He was pulled over June 6 by the Missouri State Highway Patrol in Miller County for failure to "wear properly adjusted/fastened safety belt", an infraction that carries a $10 fine. Nance did not appear at his Aug. 14 scheduled court date, and a warrant for failure to appear was issued Aug. 22, according to court records.

He was taken to the Boone County Jail with a bond of $100 and was not listed as a detainee on the jail's website Friday afternoon.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch was first to report Nance's arrest.

In a statement through a spokesperson, the football program said it was aware of Nance's arrest and was handling it internally. Nance, who leads the team in receiving with 27 catches for 410 yards and three touchdowns, will dress and be available for today's 6:30 p.m. game against Tennessee.
