PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State University's starting running back turned himself in on a misdemeanor arrest warrant Thursday night.

James Montgomery, 22, was wanted in Whitman County for failing to appear in court on a misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license.

Montgomery turned himself in at the Pullman Police Station at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, and was placed under arrest.

He was later released after posting his $1,000 bond.

The senior from California is the Cougars' leading rusher this season. It is not known yet what impact his arrest will have on his ability to play in this weekend's game against Southern Methodist University.
