SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Sacramento Kings point guard Tyreke Evans is facing a court date after being stopped for reckless driving in California.
The California Highway Patrol cited the NBA's rookie of the year Monday evening after air patrol spotted him driving a 2010 black Mercedes S550 at more than 100 m.p.h. on I-80.
CHP spokeswoman Lizz Dutton says Evans was cited and released after cooperating with officers. She says he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Officers drew their firearms and ordered Evans and a passenger out of the car because officers couldn't see inside the vehicle since its windows were tinted.
Dutton said Evans is due in court about Aug. 10. The player is a native of Chester and played for the now-defunct American Christian Academy in Aston, Delaware County, where he was a high school all-American in 2008.
