No denying his actions were stupid. That said his relatively quick release with no additional charges filed (public records should have shown) would seem to indicate we know the full extent of the foolishness. I think it’s unlikely he gets any thing other than a severe warning for his behavior from the NFL. The Cards are limited in their response by the NFLPA agreement.

Maybe he was pulling a "Tiger Woods" moment. We know how that ended up. 75 in a 35 mph zone.

Just clarifying why it's an arrestable offense rather than getting a ticket handed to you and being told to continue on your way.

Any misdemeanor ticket is an “arrestible” offense. If you don’t think so, just refuse to sign the ticket:rolleyes:.

I would think most officers would strongly consider arresting someone who just committed (in the officer’s opinion) an 8 point violation. Another one might be excessive speeding such as 90 or 100 mph+, maybe. Putting other people in the vehicle, especially children at risk, would also strengthen the possibility. Lots of possibilities

Except he wasn’t in a neighborhood and didn’t hit anything. Ifs and butts...

It's a street with either homes or apartments on each side. Lots of seniors in the area. People walking their dogs. Crossing the road at the canal, etc. Many reasons for it being only 35 MPH.

Have you ever been hungover? Hungover people don’t do anything fast, including driving.

Totally agree, even in my twenties after a hangover I used to drive really slow, but it doesn't mean I wasnt dangerous for others drivers
Being stupid like I was, I put my life in danger couple of times, learned the lesson after crushing my car against a tree, I never took my car if I was going to get drunk or I didn't get drunk if I was with my car

I was just told that for a reckless driving ticket that there is speed involved plus two other moving violations. 76 in a 35 zone is criminal speed. By itself, it does not constitute reckless driving.

I think back to the things we used to do, growing up in Africa and man is still in awe how he survived. Drunk & hanging on to door of truck doing 100 plus on highway for example. It still gives me cold shivers what youth combined with cheap & easy to obtain liquor can do. Add on law enforcement that is all about the bribe & who generally don't care smh

Not saying what he did is right, but I see people on my street, I have the third lot in my subdivision, so some people are in such a big hurry to get home, get to work, etc., I swear they are easily doing 50 in a 25 in front of my house all day! My house is after the first turn into the houses, and you can hear people revving up to pick up speed, too. It's stupid because my street is only one block, then it t-bones into a park, and you have to make a sharp turn again! So they are going 50 for literally less than a block.

Not to excuse him, but Chaparral really should be 45 MPH on that stretch if they were consistent with other local streets of the same type. East of Scottsdale Road it is 4 lanes, and all other similar roads (as well as other stretches of Chaparral) are 45 MPH.

I would guarantee that most drivers are doing 45-55 on that stretch.

that’s a far cry from 76.

If there was anyone here I'd have to put money on simultaneously clutching their pearls and getting on their high horse it's Ouchie.

I'm sure you're also one of those piling on Billy Ailish for a song she sang when 13.

A 22 year old country boy sped on a wide straight road in an area he hardly knows. It was stupid and not unexpected. End of story.
Well if there was someone here who obviously doesn’t give an ish about people it’s you. Congrats on being an awful member of society . . . one in which you don’t live and from what I know don’t have family or friends.
