Nick James arrest: City won’t proceed with charges against Misssissippi State DT

Mississippi State Bulldogs defensive tackle Nick James was arrested for public intoxication. However, on Friday it was announced that the City of Starksville will not prosecute James for driving under the influence and disturbing the peace.

From the report:

Municipal judge Rodney Faver agreed to an order of nolle prosequi, meaning that city prosecutor Caroline Moore won’t proceed with the charges. The order was signed by Moore and Starkville Police Chief Frank Nichols.

The reason for the order wasn’t immediately known.

There is no word on whether he will be suspended for the opener.

A former four-star recruit, James recorded 26 tackles, three tackles for loss and one forced fumble a season ago while earning ten starts and playing in every game. The 6-foot-5, 320-pounder is someone to watch along Mississippi State’s defensive line as he could emerge as a key contributor this season.

The Bulldogs kickoff their 2016 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 3 against South Alabama at home.
