Les Miles runs red light during ESPN interview (Video)


Les Miles is one of the most entertaining head coaches in college football, so when the ESPN cameras showed up to follow the LSU Tigers head coach as he prepares his team for this weekend’s game against top-ranked Alabama, you knew that there would be some must-see moments.

As it turns out, there was, but not for reasons you may think.

ESPN reporter Kaylee Hartung was riding shotgun with Miles as he drove around town, which led to video footage of Miles running a red light. It was a hilarious moment, but the best part is Miles didn’t seem at all concerned with blowing through the light.

The good news is that Miles buckled up and no damage was done, even if Hartung may have been concerned for her safety.

Here is video of the funny moment:

This just goes to show that having an attractive female in your passengers seat it was of the biggest distractions known to man.

Next time Les, remember to hit the brakes.

    No, the video was not of a funny moment. It was of a careless moment. And a moment in which a person or people could have been seriously injured or even killed.

      Oh, calm your panties. He saw the perpendicular street’s light go yellow, made sure no traffic was coming, and anticipated the change to green. The guy is situationally aware, not reckless or careless.

      • theconservatarian

        Nice of you to justify recklessness.

        • Nate Sphar

          Nice of you to understand what recklessness means.

          • theconservatarian

            You mad, bro?

        • Nate Sphar

          If there is absolutely zero traffic on the street perpendicular to him, what is reckless about this action, especially when his light is about to turn green? If you don’t believe the light turned green, just look at the car behind him.

          We don’t even know if the light was right as he passed through. It may have been red as he started moving but turned green as he entered the intersection. However, we’re not talking about legality here, we’re talking about common sense and awareness.

    1) He wasn’t even looking at her. He was checking for anyone that might try to drive through the yellow light on the street perpendicular to his. He was more focused on the environment around him than she was.

    2) He had come to a stop prior to this, so he did hit the brakes.
