Portland Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson cited for driving 107 MPH


Portland Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson likes to talk about his haters – haters who wrote him off after a sub-par rookie season.

But if he keeps driving like he has in the past, he may not have to worry about that.

Robinson, who crashed his car after recklessly driving during his rookie campaign with the Sacramento Kings has again found himself in vehicular trouble, this time being cited for driving 107 mph.

The former Kansas Jayhawk, who was traded by the Kings to the Houston Rockets last season, then by the Rockets to the Blazers this past offseason was allegedly driving his Porsche on Insternate-5, going well over 100-mph.

An officer “observed a white 2013 Porsche Panamera traveling at a high rate of speed on the freeway,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson, Portland Police Bureau, in an email. “The officer’s LIDAR would clock the vehicle at 107 MPH in a 55 MPH zone.”

Robinson was cited with a $1,150 dollar fine for the offense.

Thankfully, Robinson nor anybody else was injured in the poor decision.
