Tyreke Evans cited for reckless driving on I-80

By Melody Gutierrez

California Highway Patrol officers detained Kings Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans this evening after he was pulled over for reckless driving.

Evans was cited and released after cooperating with officers, said Lizz Dutton, CHP spokeswoman.

A CHP air unit spotted Evans at 6:51 p.m. in a 2010 black Mercedes S550 speeding at more than 100 mph westbound on Interstate 80 at Antelope Road. The air unit followed the Mercedes until officers could respond at 6:58 p.m. outside a park, where Evans planned to play basketball.

Officers drew guns and ordered Evans and his passenger out of the car. Dutton said Evans' windows were tinted black and officers could not see inside the vehicle so they performed a felony stop with guns drawn.

Dutton said Evans was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

"They were very cooperative," Dutton said. "He didn't know he was being followed."

Dutton did not have Evans' court date, but said it is usually 45 days from the incident.
