The Houston Rockets center had his driver’s license suspended in the state of Florida on Aug. 15 for a number of infractions.
According to court records, Howard was ticketed for running 9 red lights in 2012. He ran another one in July this year, making it an even 10 in three years.
Additionally, Reuters says he has four speeding tickets, 12 citations for failing to pay highway tolls and one for failing to change his address on his license on his Orlando record. Incredibly, Howard just needs to pay a $285 fine for running a red light in Florida to resolve everything.
Prior to signing with the Rockets last year, Howard spent 2004-2012 with the Orlando Magic, where he became a menace on the road (or just a dude who runs red lights). He’s probably not in Florida enough to be seriously concerned about resolving the matter. But this means he’s more similar to Andrew Bynum than we originally thought.
This song goes out to Dwight, from LBS, keep on with those red lights …
