Free-agent running back Derrius Guice will appear in court next month on a reckless driving charge after being pulled over in June.

TMZ Sports reported Guice was cited for going 95 miles per hour in a 55 MPH zone in Virginia. He was charged with misdemeanor reckless driving.

The Washington Football Team released Guice on Aug. 7 after he was charged with one count of strangulation and three counts of assault and battery related to three separate alleged domestic violence incidents earlier this year. Guice denied the charges in a statement provided by his attorney.

"The failure to fully investigate allegations of events, which allegedly took place months ago, is inexplicable," the statement read. "Derrius will defend these charges in court, where a full vetting of the allegations will take place, in contrast to actions by local law enforcement and the Washington Football Team that assumed the worst, directly contradicting every sense of fairness and due process."

Guice played two seasons for Washington but was limited to five games because of injury. No team claimed him on waivers after his release.

It's possible he will be subject to discipline under the NFL's personal conduct policy once his domestic violence case plays out.

According to the TMZ report, Guice has been cited for speeding four times in 13 months
