Hawks' Dwight Howard pulled over for speeding the morning of playoff loss

Hawks' Dwight Howard pulled over for speeding the morning of playoff loss

The end of the season for Dwight Howard went from bad to worse after he found himself in legal trouble. Officer E. Taffar stopped Howard's blue 2016 Audi at 2:06 a.m.

Howard was pulled over for speeding on I-285 westbound at Ashford-Dunwoody road, the report states.

He was cited for driving without insurance, a misdemeanor.

Just a few hours after that loss, Howard was pulled over by police in Dunwoody.

National Basketball Association players are night owls, but 2 a.m. before the biggest game of the season doesn't seem like the best time to go for a drive - certainly not at an alleged 95 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone. It was later discovered by police that the SUV was driven by Howard's security guard. When the officer told Howard what he found, Howard seemed "confused" and insisted that he had insurance, but couldn't provide an insurance card when police asked for it.

Howard was also reportedly driving with a suspended registration, although he only received warnings for that and speeding.

Obviously this is not great, as speeding - especially at 95 miles per hour - is pretty risky, but thankfully no one was hurt.
