COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP)Missouri backup quarterback Ashton Glaser has been arrested in Columbia on Laclede County warrants issued after he failed to show up in court for a speeding ticket.

Columbia police say Glaser was punched in the face early Sunday by an unidentified man who answered the door when Glaser sought out a female neighbor.

Witnesses called police, but only the 21-year-old Glaser was arrested after officers discovered the outstanding warrants. The arrest was first reported by the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Glaser was charged in a November 2011 traffic stop in Laclede County with speeding and not having a valid driver’s license. The warrants were issued after he failed to appear in court in January and February.

Glaser is listed as the Tigers’ third-string quarterback on spring football depth charts.
