LAND O'LAKES — Former Buccaneers wide receiver Maurice Stovall was arrested early Monday on a charge of driving with a suspended license.

Stovall, who lives in Land O'Lakes, was driving a pink Land Rover on U.S. Highway 41 shortly after midnight, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. When a deputy ran his plates, it showed that Stovall had not paid several traffic fines. He was charged with knowingly driving with a suspended or revoked license and booked into the Land O'Lakes jail.

He was released about an hour later on his own recognizance at 1:35 a.m.

Stovall, 28, played for the Bucs from 2006 to 2011. He became an unrestricted free agent in July 2011.

He played with the Detroit Lions for the 2011 season, moving to tight end, and was cut in 2012. He signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in September 2012 before being waived in December.

The arrest report did not list an occupation for Stovall, who flashed a wide grin in his jail booking mug.
