Thomas Robinson Cited for Driving 52 Miles Over the Speed Limit

by October 28, 2013

Portland Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson was cited by police on Friday for driving his Porsche 107 miles an hour in a 55 zone. Tsk, tsk. Robinson has since apologized. Per the Oregonian: “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, 22, a power forward, was acquired by the Blazers in June during a trade with the Houston Rockets. Robinson was cited for violation of the Basic Rule (100 MPH +), which carries a fine of $1,150, Simpson said. Robinson was polite and cooperative during the encounter, Simpson said.”
