New York Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson was charged with resisting arrest and multiple traffic violations after allegedly leading police on a high-speed chase in Missouri on July 14.
The 24-year-old was “clocked by police as going as fast as 143 mph” as they gave chase in St. Charles County, per Mark Schlinkmann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
At the time of his arrest, Richardson was driving with two other adults and a 12-year-old child. He was charged with resisting arrest along with “exceeding the speed limit, following too closely, failing to use lights and failing to obey a traffic signal.” A resisting arrest conviction carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail.
