FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) An arrest warrant for New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson for skipping a court hearing stemming from an alleged Florida traffic violation has been rescinded.

Broward County court records show a judge cancelled the warrant Thursday, two days after it was issued. Details weren’t immediately available and his attorney, Ed O’Donnell, didn’t immediately return a call and email from The Associated Press.

The charge stems from a January incident in Sunrise, Florida, when Anderson was charged on nine counts. The original felony charge of fleeing and eluding police with lights and sirens active was reduced on April 7 to misdemeanor reckless driving.

Anderson set career highs with 63 catches, 941 yards receiving and seven touchdowns in 2017, his second NFL season.
