I normally just glance over NBA blotter news -- because 1) at this point I think we only have two players in the Association (Jamal Crawford and Maceo Baston) and 2) NBA players are always saying and doing stupid things. But this one caught my eye...
Former Michigan State and current Phoenix Suns guard Jason Richardson was arrested in Scottsdale after local police caught him driving 55 mph above the limit with his unrestrained child in the car. The dude was going 90 MPH in a 35 zone with his 3 year old kid rolling around in the back seat. Wow.
Imagine that phone call to your wife ??? "Uhhhhh Honey, can you come and pick up Junior, I am going to jail for being a DUMBASS..."
Richardson was arrested and charged with reckless driving, excessive speeding and failure to use a child seat. His wife responded to the scene of the stop and took custody of the boy. He was released from jail after a few hours. The Suns responded by suspending him for one game (which costs him $111k).
Nice going Brah ! Sparty On !!
