MOUNT MORRIS TOWNSHIP, MICH. (AP) - Mateen Cleaves has been cited for driving with a suspended license.

The former Michigan State star was pulled over for speeding by Mount Morris Township Police on Wednesday night, the day his license was suspended.

Cleaves‘ license was suspended because he didn’t pay a responsibility fee for having too many points in February. Cleaves has to pay an additional $125 to have his license reinstated, according to secretary of state records.

Frank Manley, Cleaves‘ attorney, says payment has been sent to restore his client’s license.


Cleaves led the Spartans to the 2000 national championship. He played for Detroit, Sacramento, Cleveland and Seattle over six NBA seasons. The Flint native has been working for Fox Sports Detroit.
