Knicks J.R. Smith Arrested Over a Scooter?
New York Knicks guard J. R. Smith was arrested in Miami Beach for failing to appear in court after operating a scooter without a valid driver’s license.
Smith was cited back in May of 2011, but failed to appear for his July 25th court date.
The police did not come knocking at Smith’s door though, J.R. was putting around Miami Beach on a scooter Thursday when police spotted him.
To be clear, it’s wasn’t like the police had a huge scooter criminals manhunt this week, but just being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The same officers who cited Smith last year spotted him at a South Beach business on Thursday evening and took care of some unfinished business. (New York Times)
The lesson to be learned? If you are a somewhat famous person with a warrant riding a scooter, don’t whiz by the officers who busted ya!
