Richardson was reportedly clocked at 143 miles per hour by local police who reported smelling the odor of marijuana coming from Richardson’s car, which also contained a fully loaded hand gun, all with a twelve-year old occupant in the vehicle.
Already suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, Richardson will now await a trial in October which will undoubtedly be followed by additional punishment from commissioner Roger Goodell.
