NBA’s Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans Caught Driving Over 100 mph

by

California Highway Patrol officers drew their weapons on the Sacramento Kings’ Tyreke Evans on Sunday after they pulled him over for reckless driving.

The NBA Rookie of the Year was clocked by CHP air patrol driving more than 100 miles per hour on Interstate 80 in a 2010 Mercedes S550, according to the Sacramento Bee. The air patrol tracked Evans for several minutes before officers pulled him over near a park.

Officers then drew their guns and ordered Evans and a passenger out of the car because they couldn’t see through the car’s tinted windows. It is illegal to tint driver’s and passenger’s side windows, according to the CHP.

"They were very cooperative," CHP spokeswoman Lizz Dutton told the newspaper. "He didn't know he was being followed."

Evans was briefly detained, but was released when the officers determined that there was no threat. He was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, Dutton said.

A court date has not yet been set, but one typically is held 45 days after the incident.
