Werth was cited for reckless driving on July 6 after being pulled over for speeding at 105 mph in a 55-mph zone, a check of the Fairfax General District Court shows. The Washington Nationals outfielder was scheduled to appear in court Aug. 8, but that hearing was continued to Nov. 12.
The Nats issued this statement to The Washington Post in response to Werth’s violation:
“The Washington Nationals have been in communication with right fielder Jayson Werth regarding this situation for multiple weeks,” a Nationals spokesperson said in an e-mailed statement. “Jayson is cooperating with the authorities. As it is an ongoing legal matter, the team has no further comment.”
The only good thing we can say about this citation is at least Werth wasn’t wearing pink shorts and caught on a dash cam video when he was busted for speeding.
