Junior Galette was arrested Friday, according to Sheldon Fox of 7 News.
Per the report, Galette was arrested this Friday morning for having “no valid driver’s license.”
Police arrested the former NFL linebacker on South Beach on a charge of having no valid driver’s license after he ignored an officer’s attempt to “lecture” him on his use of a motor scooter on Ocean Drive, according to a police report.
The police said Galette tried to “conceal” himself after making an illegal turn.
The 34-year-old played in the NFL from 2010 to 2017, suiting up for the New Orleans Saints and Washington.
Galette made headlines in August for suing the NFL, NFL Players Association, Roger Goodell and several teams. In a 21-page lawsuit, he claimed he has been blackballed “just like Colin Kaepernick and put on the blacklist BY THE NFL OWNERS” because he spoke out about alleged racial discrimination committed against him.
For his career, he had 148 career tackles, 77 quarterback hits, 34.5 sacks and six forced fumbles.
