NBA Rookie of the Year going 120-130 mph on video
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP)—The basketball court isn’t the only place where Sacramento Kings player Tyreke Evans(notes) apparently likes to move fast.
A video released by the California Highway Patrol shows Evans speeding past vehicles on Interstate 80 in his purple Mercedes. CHP officers say he was driving 120 to 130 miles per hour.
The video of the 20-year-old NBA Rookie of the Year was shot from a plane on Memorial Day weekend.
After being stopped by police, Evans was arrested at gunpoint.
Authorities say the video offers evidence that Evans may have been racing another vehicle.
Attorneys say he pleaded no contest to reckless driving, was sentenced to 80 hours of community service, ordered to take part in teen driving programs and lost his license for 30 days.
For those more familiar with the metric system, Tyreke Evans top speed reached almost 210km per hour! Nice influence he will have on Demarcus Cousins.
The NBA where dumb happens.
