Auburn quarterback T.J. Finley was arrested by campus police and listed as being in custody as of Thursday, WRBL reports.
Finley, 20, was charged with attempt to elude, which stemmed from a traffic violation for riding his scooter without a helmet, and was later released on a bond, his attorney, Davis Whittelsey, confirmed.
“The charges pending against my client, T.J Finley, are the result of traffic violations and a misunderstanding," Whittlesey said via WRBL. "The charges are in the process of being handled in Municipal Court within the City of Auburn as all traffic citations are. As soon as T.J. learned of the charges, he turned himself in and has been released on a bond he signed for himself. His first day of football camp with Auburn University has been a success."
Whittelsey said Finley was present for Auburn's first practice on Thursday after making bond.
News of Finley's arrest comes days after he became the first college football player to sign a name, image, and likeness deal with Amazon.
Finley is competing for Auburn's starting quarterback after making three starts for injured starter Bo Nix -- who transferred to Oregon this past offseason -- nine appearances in 2021, throwing for 827 yards, six touchdowns, and one interception on 70 of 128 passing.
The Louisiana native had previously played at LSU as a true freshman, throwing for 941 yards, five touchdowns, and five interceptions on 80 of 140 passing, while also recording 34 yards and a touchdown on 29 rushing attempts, before transferring to Auburn prior to the 2021 season.
