    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested Thursday morning for going more than 100 mph on a Valley freeway, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said.

    Tomas was allegedly driving 105 mph on the northbound Loop 101. He was pulled over at 9:26 a.m. near Baseline Road on the border of Tempe and Mesa.

    He was not impaired.

    Tomas was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding.

    He was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail and the 2015 Mercedes he was driving was impounded.


    Arizona law states that a driver can be arrested for exceeding 35 mph near a school zone, 20 mph over the given speed limit or going faster than 85 mph on any road.

    The maximum sentence for a criminal speeding charge — a Class 3 misdemeanor — in the state is up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500.

    The guilty person’s license could also be suspended.

    Well, it was the 101 after all. 90+ is not uncommon now that the cameras are gone.

    I'm surprised they booked him though unless he was truly being reckless. That time of the morning most rush hour traffic has died down, but there's still a fair amount on it.

    Indeed. It’s a huge problem.
    I’m happy he wasn’t under the influence of anything other than being dumb enough to drive that fast.

    One of the few big leaguers that can drive his batting average in a car.

    Up here in the Flagstaff area, troopers arrest all the time for those kinds of speeds (or at least did when I worked in the office).

    Is the speed limit on that stretch 55 or 65? I think it's 55. So Yasmani was going almost double the limit. A bit extreme, wouldn't you say?

    You hit 90 all the time? On a freeway two miles east of Scottsdale Road. With a good amount of enter and exit traffic. That's extreme, too.

    I drive about about 10-15 mph over the limit, which is necessary to fit into the flow of traffic. 90 or 105 is unsafe within city limits. Think about it, Chris.

    Of course, in Yasmani's case, his complete lack of discretion ties in with never getting the hang of the common sense needed to be a ballplayer worthy of his extreme salary.

    We can thank the Diamondbacks for making him think he is invincible.
