JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri State Representative LaKeySha Bosley was arrested Monday for an outstanding warrant related to a speeding ticket.
Bosley was arrested in Jefferson City Monday night and was held at the Cole County jail. She was released just before midnight.

“After recently being made aware of old warrants related to a traffic citation, I took immediate steps to have them resolved and believed they had been. I am now working to make sure all matters related to this situation are settled to the satisfaction of the relevant legal authorities. Elected officials are rightly held to a high standard of conduct, and I owe it to my constituents to make sure [I] obtain and exceed that.”
