On July 3, word emerged that Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson would miss the first four games of the 2015 regular season due to violations of the substance-abuse policy. Eleven days later, it didn’t get much better.


Via FOX 2 in St. Louis, Richardson was arrested on July 14 in Missouri for street racing and resisting arrest.

“The vehicles were clocked on radar three times at speeds of 122, 135, and 143 miles per hour,” per the report.

Richardson’s vehicle, a 2014 Bentley Silver Spur, allegedly increased its speed to avoid the police, running through a traffic signal and turning off the lights. The driver then turned into the driveway of a home to avoid detection.

Richardson turned out to be the driver. Two other men and a 12-year-old child was in the car. So was a fully-loaded handgun and the odor of marijuana.

Check the gallery for the police statement. It is pretty intense. Wouldn’t be surprised if Richardson now winds up missing the entire 2015 season.
