When he was taken second overall in the NBA draft some years ago, there were high hopes for Michael Beasley. But he is now on his third team in his young career and we’ve long since heard rumors about his work ethic and lack of effort. This recent news certainly doesn’t help either.
He was cited for driving with a suspended license, driving with excessive speed, driving with expired registration and failure to display a license plate on the rear of the vehicle. Driving with a suspended license and excessive speeding are criminal traffic violations, whereas driving with expired registration and failure to display a license plate are civil traffic violations. The report states the officer placed Beasley in handcuffs and arrested him, but decided to release him at the scene due to his cooperation.
