Warrant withdrawn for Rams' Tre Mason after missed hearing

An arrest warrant for Los Angeles Rams running back Tre Mason for failing to appear in court has been withdrawn.

The warrant had been active in Broward County (Florida) since April 11, when Mason did not show for his arraignment on misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana, reckless driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and resisting arrest.

It was determined that the court notice was sent to an incorrect address.

Mason has entered a not guilty plea to the four charges, which stem from an arrest on March 5, when he was subdued with a stun gun and arrested after driving away from police officers attempting to pull him over for going more than twice the speed limit in a 35 mph zone, according to the initial police report.

The arresting officer wrote that Mason refused to identify himself or produce a driver's license and that he smelled marijuana coming from Mason's Porsche.

A third-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft, Mason became the starter in his rookie season, rushing for 765 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games. His role was reduced last year after the Rams took running back Todd Gurley with the 10th pick in the 2015 draft.
