Former running back Clinton Portis still keeps up with NFL action and can often be heard calling into Washington D.C. radio station, 106.7 The Fan.
Thursday was no different as Portis rang up his former teammate and current talk show host Fred Smoot to talk about the ongoing soap opera that is the Washington Redskins.
Little did Portis know, he’d be involved in some drama in the very near future as the former Pro Bowl talent was pulled over by a state trooper who cited the former Skins running back for speeding.
The interview was going well until Smoot and co-host Kevin Shafer bid him goodbye and he said: “Hey y’all no problem, you all just got me a speeding ticket.”
Apparently the trooper was not impressed with Portis’ NFL credentials. While it was never established what team the trooper rooted for, the radio hosts did express concern he was a Ravens fan.
“I shouldn’t have gave him my license, I should have just hit it,” Portis joked as he waited for the police officer to run his license.
Portis took the ticket in stride, even asking the trooper if he’d like to say hello to his friends on the radio.
