Not Guilty Plea For NFL Player Arrested In Laurens Co.

Posted: Updated:
LAURENS COUNTY, S.C. -

A judge has accepted a not guilty plea for the NFL player and Greenwood native who is accused of going 89 in a 55 mile-per-hour zone in Laurens County last month.

L/Cpl. R.S. Salter with the SC Highway Patrol was suspended without pay after arresting Sidney "Sam" Montgomery on June 25.

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety released a statement saying while arresting Montgomery was lawful, Salter's behavior during the traffic stop was "not representative of the professionalism displayed by our troopers and officers every day around the state."

Dashcam video of the stop was later released.  Watch it here.

Salter remains on suspension.  The investigation continues.

Montgomery is currently listed as a defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals.
