Atlanta, GA (PPN) – After losing in the first round of playoffs, Dwight Howard took his frustration out in his car. Howard has bounced around from team to team in the NBA and is currently playing for the Atlanta Hawks.
Back on April 28, Atlanta lost to the Wizards ending the Hawks playoff run and season. Dwight Howard had only 9 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 turnovers.
His post game frustrations led to him lashing out with a long, fast drive. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“Just a few hours after that loss, Howard was pulled over by police in Dunwoody. A few minutes later, an officer had the eight-time NBA All-Star’s car towed.”
“A police report states that Howard, 31, was pulled over for speeding in the wee hours of the morning on April 29. Police found that he was driving on a suspended registration and without insurance.”
Howard got off fairly easy for speeding, going 95 in a 65 zone. His stardom may have had something to do with only being given a uninsured ticket, verbal warning for speeding and the lack of registration.
The vehicle was towed, Howard got in the black SUV of his bodyguard, who was following him.
It’s going to be an interesting off-season for Howard, again. He may be traded despite the two-years and $47 million left on his contract.
