N.C. State junior basketball player Trevor Lacey was arrested near campus this past Friday for a failure to appear in court.
Lacey missed his Wake County court date for a traffic violation in April. He received a second traffic violation on Friday for riding a moped without a helmet. When Lacey was stopped by N.C. State University police on Friday at 12:39 a.m. on Western Boulevard in Raleigh, he was arrested for missing his original court date.
Lacey, a transfer from Alabama, sat out last season and is expected to be the primary scorer for the Wolfpack this season.
"We are aware of the situation involving Trevor, and are awaiting the final dispositions of both the legal and university processes," said Fred Demarest, the associate athletic director for communications, in a statement released by the school.

Lacey's legal trouble started with a speeding ticket on Feb. 23, going 59 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone on Pullen Road on campus. He had a court date of April 4 for the traffic violation, which he subsequently missed.
Lacey's scheduled to appear in Wake County court on Monday for the original ticket. He also has a date on Nov. 13 for the riding-without-a-helmet ticket.
