Video: Tyreke Evans Reckless Driving 130 MPH

Big. Body. Benz. From the Sacramento Bee: “The video shows his nine-mile trip down I-80 and his arrest. [...] Evans was pulled over at a park in Sacramento’s Robla neighborhood, CHP officers approached with guns drawn. [...] Evans was eventually cited and released. He signed a few autographs and left.”

    hope he’s not still doing that kind of thing

    Isn’t this the second time this has happened? And the Kings just drafted Cousins, a supposed headcase. Oh yeah, this’ll end well. The dude has enough money to just race around a track of his choice, why not just do that rather than jeopardise his career/image?

    Dude signed autographs and left. Nice.

    Ah, this was that same first time. Wonder how Reke felt about having a gun pointed at him.

  • nastierthanu4

    I’m slightly unimpressed by the driving. There was a period at the 1:48 mark where he didn’t go low, that type of indecision could really cost you time.

  • aL

    thats one long video

  • Nick the Quick

    This comes in response to being left off the USA team, sticking it to Colangelo and Coach K. ” You think I have a bum ankle,huh? I’ll SHOW you my lead foot!”

  • http://slamonline.com JL

    if you want to go race, do it on a track. come on.


    When someone drives reckless like that they aren’t just putting themselves (and passengers) at risk, but everyone else on the road. Those who selfishly choose to drive reckless like that need to be exposed to some gruesome photos of what happens to people involved in high speed auto accidents, as well as those who’s lives have been changed forever by selfish and reckless drivers.

    This is a guy who while in high school was driving a car during a drive by shooting in which his two cousins killed somebody. Now with this, I’m not surprised. He will be locked up soon.

  • http://slamonline.com mike

    you all do realize this happened a while back – this didn’t just happen

    check the date, it was in may. come on folks.

    yep this is old stuff I remember the headline on ESPN from like 3 months back….anyways yeah, he’s a young man thats been given the world on a platter, he’ll learn and mature

  • neaorin

    As an European, whenever I’m watching / driving on US highways I’m always amazed by the fact that everyone just drives on whatever lane they damn please.

  • Yann Blavec

    I’m french and I agree

  • dimo

    130 mph is nothing speacial on german freeways

  • Shem

    gotta love slam

    Nobody ever complains about Tyreke holding traffic up.

  • slamfan4life

    Damn 13min!

    But who cares, everyone speeds

  • Tweaks

    Come on …give the man a break!!!. Oh wait…

  • LD

    We’ve all had it happen to us where we had diarrhea, but hate using public restrooms, so we had to get home ASAP!

  • spit hot fiyah

    @ neaorin and yann
    i’m from europe and lived in LA for a few years, i was amazed at first too, then u start liking it. Basically this is how it works is, if u r in a hurry u go as fast as ur guts will let you until there is a car close in front of you, then you just take the next lane and to the same until u get to where u need to be. u can pass cars on either side too, which makes things easier/more dangerous.

  • spit hot fiyah

    and u can turn right on a red light which is real good, but it will have somebody visiting u from overseas freak out if they don’t know about it.

  • spit hot fiyah

    new nickname? reckless havoc

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    Signs autographs and gets off scot-free. Totally woulda happened if Reke was, say, a bartender. Or anyone else normal.

  • http://kb24.com DreXnaW21

    you’re getting paid millions of dollars just to play basketball in the NBA and these dudes still make stupid decisions like this…

    might as well be an infamous balla

    Nice watch Reke, can see the wrist lit up from the chopper.

  • http://gmail dirty frank

    @ Moose. I’m sure he is not off scot-free. He’ll probably lose his license. Stupid – yes. Do almost all young males drive their cars recklessly from time to time – yes. The only reason the speed is so high is because he has a car capable of it. 130 in that car is safer than 90 in most kids first cars.

  • http://gmail dirty frank

    Totally agree with omphalos. I can only wish I had the money to go racing safely on a track.

  • Billy Sunday

    rashard lewis got arrested too for racing in i90 back when he played for the sonics. he got off too

  • Dre

    That Challenger saw the copter… he dropped his speed as soon as he realized they were being followed. Reke thought he finally caught him and went past probably laughing. Cause that Challenger was blowing his doors off for real.

  • thefroh

    Yeah no big deal, he was only going 130 mph.

    You apologists are crazy. He could have killed someone.

  • joe.smith

    thats bad the fact thaqt he got away with nothing and sighed a few autographs he could have killed some one i love evans but its so stupid he got away with nuffin

  • logues

    whos the white boy?

  • http://Www.lkz.net Darksaber

    130? Pah! Top Gear’s James May took a Bugatti Veyron SS around a track at 250+ in last weeks ep. :-)

  • hendry

    wow, they didnt even impound his car huh.

  • JTaylor21

    @Dre, do you really think that a challenger could really stay with a S550 German engineered Benz. That car got a beast under the hood, don’t let the beautiful look fool ya.

  • http://gmail dirty frank

    For those saying he got away with nothing – I’m quite sure he will lose his license. There’s a European country, I’m not sure which one, that issues speeding fines based on earnings. Maybe U.S. should adopt that.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Stupid.. My cousin likes racing other cars down the highway.. Could kill him or another motorist.. Look what happened when Bobby Phills and David Wesley decided to race after practice..

  • tom

    is speeding a crime in the us? i mean can´t they just give him his ticket and thats it?

  • http://slamonline.com Dave.

    I hope the Kings organise a sit down with Tyreke and David Wesley.

  • hendry

    @jtaylor21 his mercedes is a 550 not the amg version.. plus s550 is heavy, camaro definitely has a chance to beat it.

  • total scrotal implosion

    the rotating view from above makes me think its an ac130, in mw2. lang. funny how he ended up at basketball courts, thats for seed who will no doubt say he should be practicing his jumpshot and nothing else ever, no downtime, just practice. dummies who say he got off free, it must be too much trouble to read the three lines above the video. SKWT, PROOF! OR YOURE JUST MAKING SHTI UP

  • total scrotal implosion

    Evans was ordered to serve three years’ informal probation and 80 hours of alternative sentencing, Sacramento County District Attorney Jan Scully said in a written announcement. His driver’s license also was suspended for 30 days, and he was ordered to participate in two California Highway Patrol Start Smart Driving programs, educational programs targeting teenage drivers.
