Kenyon Martin Did 101 in 30mph Zone, Got Off with Preferential Treatment
Funny how LeBron’s speeding ticket was all in the news a few weeks ago, but nobody heard anything about K-Mart’s. Well, as Matt Watson explains, it’s because Kenyon’s speeding incidents happened two years ago but the prosecutor is just now getting in trouble for letting K-Mart off easy. And if you noticed above, I said incidents — as in plural. His escapades would give certain LBS readers who received certain tickets in certain cities just south of Las Vegas … a run for their money.
K-Mart was ticketed in January of ’06 doing 101 in a 30mph zone. About half a year later, Kenyon was ticketed for doing 103 in a 55mph zone. Wow. These could have been residential neighborhoods he was getting up to triple digits in. And though he had points on his license and was supposed to have his license suspended at the least, he got off because he got some sweet plea bargains. I can’t really blame Kenyon for hiring people to take advantage of our flawed legal system; it’s just a shame our legal system can be so easily manipulated. And hotdamn, 101 in a 30? Who does he think he is, freaking Jeff Gordon or something?
