CALGARY - Former Stampeder speedster Joffrey Reynold’s alleged run from the law was short-lived.

Reynolds, who’s been convicted of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, was wanted on a warrant issued Thursday after allegedly missing a curfew.

About 9 a.m. Friday, police said they picked him up without incident in downtown Calgary.

He was held until a justice of the peace determined whether he’d be allowed back into house arrest to begin serving a 90-day prison sentence to be completed on weekends.

Reynolds, 33, was convicted in February for two incidents last July in which the all-star running back accosted his former girlfriend.
