Hopefully for the Chicago Bulls, who just took Derrick Rose #1 in the NBA draft, driving over the speed limit is the only problem they have to deal with as far as off the court problems are with Derrick Rose.
Rose, 19, who live in Chicago’s West Englewood community, was driving a 2008 Land Rover on April 29 when he was stopped at 2:58 a.m. about a mile west of Illinois Highway 47 for allegedly going 106 m.p.h. in a 65-m.p.h. zone, according to Kane County court records. He is scheduled to appear in court July 11.
The article says that Rose could face a maximum of one year in jail, but that never happens with traffic tickets unless it’s your 40th ticket or something ridiculous like that. Rose, who will become a millionaire shortly when he signs a deal with the Bulls, will have to go to traffic school with the rest of Illinois’ traffic violating Joe Schmoes.
