Jadeveon Clowney requests jury trial on speeding ticket


South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was cited for speeding twice during the month of December. The first time he was clocked going 110 mph in a 70 mph zone on Interstate 77. That carried a fine of $355 and six points on his license.

Later in the month he was clocked going 84 mph in a 55 mph zone on Interstate 26. That carried a fine of $445.

From WLTX:

Former USC star Jadeveon Clowney is requesting a jury trial for a speeding ticket he received in Fairfield County last month.

Paperwork was filed Wednesday in a Fairfield County magistrate’s office.

Clowney might be gambling on his popularity in the state in trying to get a jury trial. Of course having declared for the 2014 NFL Draft, he’ll have no problem paying these tickets shortly.

Of course no one likes paying speeding tickets regardless of income. We’ve seen multiple NFL players get arrested for unpaid tickets in the offseason. At least Clowney is doing something about his even if it is slightly ridiculous.
