Richardson arrested for reckless driving with 3 year old son in car

When it rains, it pours...

Suns guard Jason Richardson was arrested and booked into Scottsdale City Jail on Sunday after a police officer pulled him over for driving 90 mph in a 35 mph with his 3-year-old son unrestrained in his vehicle's back seat, according to Scottsdale police.

Scottsdale police first clocked Richardson, 27, traveling at 67 mph in a 40 mph zone of the 6500 block of East Camelback Road before the vehicle turned northbound onto 64th Street. Police said that Richardson then reached a speed of 90 mph before being pulled over in the 5400 block of North 64th Street at about 8 p.m.

The police summary stated that Richardson identified himself as a Suns player and admitted speeding. The officer noticed that Richardson's 3-year-old son was in the back seat and was not in a child seat, as required by state law. Richardson told the officer he and his son had gone to dinner and were on their way to his Paradise Valley home.

Who would have ever thought that the Suns could somehow become the most dysfunctional, embarassing outfit in town?  As the dad of a 3 year old myself, I'm glad that the kid is okay but utterly beyond horrified that he was risking his son's life like that, and indeed only a few miles away from my neighborhood.  Wonder if a Shaq/Kerr/Sarver/J-Rich trade would find any takers?
