BREAKING: Blatche Arrested

New, comments

It's not April 1st, so this isn't a joke.  Here's the WaPo with the story:

Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche was arrested Wednesday in south-central Virginia on charges of reckless driving and driving on a suspended license for the third time, authorities said.

Blatche, who is entering his fourth season with the Wizards and signed a five-year contract worth around $15 million last summer, was clocked going 86 mph in a 70 mph zone on Interstate 85, said Brunswick County 1st Sgt. Dwyane Jones. In Virginia, anyone driving faster than 80 mph can be charged with reckless driving said Jones, who was the arresting officer.

Blatche, 21, was heading north from Georgia to the Washington area in a 2008 Mercedes. He appeared before a magistrate and was released on bond, Jones said.

"He was very cooperative," Jones said.

There's probably going to be more on this later, but right now there's a wall that needs my attention...
