Oh these crazy kids and their driving machines.
According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Louisville’s George Durant was arrested Saturday after compiling a rather impressive list of traffic offenses. The paper reports that, following a traffic stop at shortly after 9:30 local time by a Louisville Metro Police Department officer, the linebacker was charged with speeding, reckless driving, failure of owner to maintain insurance and failure to carry an operator’s license.
Durant and his 1997 Nissan Maxima were originally pulled over for allegedly getting clocked at 26 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. What said speed limit was isn’t clear.
A school spokesperson told the Courier-Journal that head coach Charlie Strong is aware of one of his players going all NASCAR but will have no further comment on the lead-footed one.
Durant has started 12 of the 32 games in which he’s played the past three seasons, including four starts this year. The fifth-year senior was listed as the starter at strongside linebacker heading into last Thursday’s game against Rutgers.
