Chris Rodriguez is one of the best running backs in the country. The star runner from the University of Kentucky was arrested for DUI, and now he has an arrest warrant for missing his court hearing.

Chris Rodriguez from the University of Kentucky is one of the top-rated 2023 NFL Draft prospects, and he is in the news again.

A judge issued an arrest warrant for University of Kentucky football player after he failed to appear in court Friday afternoon.

Judge Denotra Gunter issued a warrant for Rodriguez’s arrest and imposed a $200 fine. Rodriguez, the team’s returning starter at running back, faces three charges operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, careless driving, and no tail lamps — stemming from an arrest early Sunday morning. His arraignment was scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday.

The UK football team released a statement stating that Rodriguez’s attorneys were at fault for his non-appearance.

This is not Rodriguez’s first incident. He had another driving incident less than one year ago. He did admit to drinking a couple shots.

Rodriguez is the star running back for Kentucky and finished with 1,238 yards rushing last year with 8 touchdowns. This is definitely not great decision-making.

Update: The Judge set the warrant aside according to Matt Jones from KY Sports Radio, due to the lawyer’s mishap.
