Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was arrested for an absurdly stupid reason.

According to TMZ, the former LSU star was arrested and taken into custody Thursday for allegedly not paying a $204 parking ticket from November. It was also revealed that he was driving on a suspended license. He was released after posting a $1,058 bond. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Women On Instagram)

For those of you out there wondering what type of cash Fournette has made, the big running back has made more than $20 million in his first two years in the NFL.

How is this even possible? How does a guy who has made more than $20 million allegedly not pay a speeding ticket that is barely more than $200. I feel like your average American would essentially have no problem at all dealing with that. (RELATED: Jacksonville Jaguars Reportedly Void Leonard Fournette’s Remaining Guaranteed Money)

If your average person can pay a speeding ticket, then a dude playing in the NFL shouldn’t have any kind of problem at all.

It’s really more embarrassing than anything else. I’d love to hear Fournette’s explanation for allegedly not paying the ticket.

Would a guy with his kind of money even notice if $200 went missing? I highly doubt it.

Something tells me that the guys in the locker room won’t be letting him forget about this anytime soon.
