NBA: Kings’ Tyreke Evans cited for reckless driving

Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Highway Patrol says CHP officers pulled over and cited the Sacramento Kings' Tyreke Evans for reckless driving.

CHP spokeswoman Liz Dutton says Evans, who was named the NBA's Rookie of the Year, was released after cooperating with officers Sunday evening. She says he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Dutton says a CHP air patrol spotted Evans driving a 2010 black Mercedes S550 at more than 100 miles per hour on Interstate 80 before officers pulled him over.

Dutton says the officers drew their firearms and ordered Evans and a passenger out of the car because the officers couldn't see inside the vehicle because its windows were tinted.
