Tyreke Evans caught driving over 100 mphPosted by Inside Hoops
The Sacramento Bee reports:
Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans was briefly detained for reckless driving Monday evening after California Highway Patrol officers said they clocked the NBA Rookie of the Year at more than 100 mph on Interstate 80.
Officers drew guns and ordered Evans and his passenger out of Evans’ 2010 black Mercedes-Benz S550, said Lizz Dutton, CHP spokeswoman. Evans’ windows were tinted black and officers could not see inside the vehicle, so they performed a felony stop with guns drawn, she said.
Evans’ handcuffs were removed once officers determined there was no threat, Dutton said. It is illegal to tint the windshield and driver’s and passenger’s side windows, according to the CHP.
Evans, 20, was cited for reckless driving.
