TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State starting linebacker Mister Alexander is in hot water with the law for missing a court date for driving without a license.

Alexander, who is from Texas, was arrested Tuesday for failure to appear, a spokesman for the Leon County sheriff's office said. The athlete turned himself in after learning about a warrant for his arrest. He was released on $125 bail.

A court date is set for Sept. 30.

A Tallahassee police officer stopped Alexander last year for loud music. When asked for a driver's license, Alexander said he didn't have one and gave police his Florida ID.

Florida State officials did not immediately comment on Alexander's playing status going into Saturday's game at Oklahoma.
