CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) -- New York Jets running back Joe McKnight was arrested last week in New Jersey for outstanding traffic warrants after being stopped by police.

McKnight was pulled over last Tuesday morning, an off day for players from camp at SUNY Cortland, for changing lanes without signaling, according to Hanover Township Police Chief Steve Gallagher. After stopping McKnight, police discovered the two outstanding warrants: one for failure to produce an insurance card in Summit, N.J., while the other was for failure to observe a traffic signal in Springfield.

McKnight was then arrested and later posted $320 bail -- the amount of the warrants -- and released with summons for unsafe lane change and having an uninsured vehicle.

The Jets declined comment on the arrest, first reported by The New York Post.
