MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A traffic stop involving Memphis offensive lineman Trevon Tate has revealed outstanding warrants in his name.

Kristi Ransom, a communications manager for the city of Germantown, Tennessee, said Monday that Germantown police stopped Tate on Friday at 7:30 p.m. for driving 89 mph in a 40-mph zone. Ransom said a warrant check revealed Tate had Harris County, Texas, warrants for charges of theft and violation of probation.

Tate’s lawyer, Leslie Ballin, said Monday Tate had been released from jail on his own recognizance.

Tate, a redshirt freshman from Houston, has played in each of the Tigers’ first four games and started their last two games at right tackle.

Memphis (4-0, 1-0 American) plays at South Florida (1-2, 0-0) on Friday.
