Lakers center could have been arrested for reckless driving

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — It looks like a bum knee isn’t enough to slow down Andrew Bynum. reports police clocked the Lakers center going 110 MPH in a 55 MPH zone in his customized 2010 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano on October 29.

Law enforcement sources say Bynum was ultimately cited for speeding, but was spared a trip to the slammer on a reckless driving charge because traffic was relatively light and he was not weaving in and out of lanes.

    No problem, that oversize cross on his chest will protect him and all the innocent bystanders.

    the same offense and need a $20,000 bond to get
    out of Jail. I had no idea anyone on the Lakers were

      If I remember correctly, Al Gore III was drunk and riding with Xanax and oxycontin. Not quite the same crime…

  4. It doesn’t take a knee to go 110mph, just a foot.

    Well lets see… We have a rapist and now a driving school instructor. All we need now is a larcency wrap to round things out. What more do we need to say. I hope they won’t another title, the city can’t afford any more riots, fires and robberies.

    If Bristol Palin, can get away with B.S. in front of all America, why can’t Andrew.

  8. Kobe says:

    As long as he helps us 3peat,he can do 120mph for all I care

  10. R says:

    Maybe all the lead in his foot caused the knee problem.

    This is bull s***t. Just because it is Andrew Bynum it is ok to be driving 110 mph as he was not weaving in and out of traffic and traffic was light. Well, if he killed somebody, then would they put him in jail? The officers must have been so thrilled to meet Andrew. A plain old Joe would have been arrested and put in jail.

    1. Duh! says:

      @dlk – you obviously have no clue what the speed law or reckless driving law is in California. I suggest you go look it up. The CHP stations sell a CA Law book for motor vehicles at a fairly low cost (the last one I got was $3, but that was a while ago)

    I like Drew as a player, but he just keeps doing more and more dumb things that reflect poorly on his character. I know he’s a young guy, but I’d really like to see him grow up a bit and really dedicate himself, so he can realize his full potential on the court.
