Chris Jennings, a former Arizona Wildcats running back who was cut Friday by the New York Jets, was arrested early Sunday for allegedly driving 147-mph in a 65-mph zone, according to Fox8 in Cleveland.

Jennings, who played for the Cleveland Browns in 2009, was pulled over by the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Troopers also discovered his 2004 BMW had expired plates and Jennings was driving under a suspended license.

Jennings, who walked-on to Arizona as a junior college transfer, had two solid seasons with the Wildcats. He rushed 158 times for 607 yards and four touchdowns, and he also caught 34 passes for 262 yards and one score.

He was playing in the Canadian Football League in 2009 when the Cleveland Browns called. He ended up rushing 63 times for 220 yards that season. He didn’t play in the NFL in 2010, but signed with the Jets in January.
