Video shows Kings' Evans speeding on highway

Posted: Updated:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The basketball court isn't the only place where Sacramento Kings player Tyreke Evans apparently likes to move fast.

A video released Friday by California Highway Patrol shows Evans speeding past vehicles on Interstate 80 in his purple Mercedes. CHP officers say he was driving 120 to 130 miles per hour.

The video of the 20-year-old NBA Rookie of the Year was shot from a plane on Memorial Day weekend.

After being stopped by police, Evans was arrested at gunpoint.

Authorities say the video offers evidence that Evans may have been racing another vehicle.

After pleading no contest to reckless driving, attorneys say Evans was sentenced to 80 hours of community service and ordered to take part in teen driving programs.

He was also given three years' informal probation and his driver's license was suspended for 30 days.
