    News Release: Valdosta Police Department
    Updated: April 1, 2014, 11:40am

    On March 29, 2014 at approximately 4:30 pm, an officer with the Valdosta Police Department was patrolling in the 100 block of W. Alden Avenue, when he saw the driver of a white, Nissan Maxima, who was not wearing a seatbelt.

    The officer conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in the 1900 block of N. Patterson Street. A passenger in the vehicle, Greggory Lamar Reid, was found to have an active arrest warrant for Violation of Probation.

    Reid was arrested and transported to the Lowndes County Jail.

    Anyone having any further information regarding this crime or any other crime is urged to contact the Valdosta Police Department at 229-293-3145 or can remain anonymous at 229-293-3091.

    Just days after signing a professional football contract, former Florida State stand-out Greg Reid is back behind bars.

    Reid was arrested in Valdosta on Saturday for violation of probation.

    Valdosta Police say he was a passenger in a car pulled over because the driver was not wearing a seat belt.

    Reid had a warrant out for his arrest for not checking in with his probation officer - that stemming from his 2012 arrest for possession of marijuana and driving on a suspended license.

    Reid is being held without bond at the Lowndes County Jail.

    He just signed with the Saint Louis Rams last week as a free agent.

    Not an auspicious beginning to his career with the Rams ..

    If they send him to the slammer in california, we can have the best pair of corners currently incarcerated together of any nfl team. Maybe he can work on coverage schemes with Daryl Henley, who is doing a 41 year stretch.

    Could have been worse, he could have been the driver! Or been smoking pot. Or been holding a puppy out the window. Or flashing gang signs in a game.

    Okay fine, the dude's doomed.
    I believe!

    All kidding aside, from a background check perspective, i guess this means that the Rams dont check for outstanding warrants before they sign a guy?

    Seriously! That's a very small window for him to have not checked in with his parole officer, if in fact the team checked and he did not have any outstanding warrants. It's more likely he either lied or failed to mention that to the Front Office.

    Reid is being held without bond at the Lowndes County Jail.
    GC and AV: Does this mean he simply hasn't posted bail, or his offense is serious enough that Greg has been disallowed the opportunity to post bail?

    "Reid was too occupied with his new NFL STL Rams opportunity to remember or think about probation!"

    Translation: Snead and Fisher shaking their head.

    I know we're supposed to keep politics, etc, out of the conversation & I'm not condoning a mistake as dumb as failing to meet the terms of probation, but I was the passenger in a car stopped for relatively trivial stuff like a seatbelt violation on more than one occasion when I was in my 20s & NEVER was asked for ID. Then again, I am white, and I was never stopped in Georgia.

    This scenario just screams racial profiling in the still of the night.

    ProFootballTalk says he's being held without bond.
    Dude is done. He was given the opportunity of a lifetime and didn't have the brains to take care of something so simple.

    Hey! Good to see you AeO.

    As for the observation ... hmmm, maybe the officer is black, just doing his job? Seems nowadays law agents, law enforcement as a whole, are being ever more careful and thorough about checking those they stop -- and what is in their possession.

    IMO, this should shake Reid's sense of awareness / boost his sense of responsibility. He MUST use that "ruthless" attribute of his better than that.

    Come on Greg, you wanted a chance in the NFL. Don't ruin your career before it even starts!
