According to the report, Beasley was cited for driving with a suspended license, driving with excessive speed, driving with an expired registration, and failure to display a license plate or temporary tags on his 2009 Mercedes. Now I can sympathize with Beasley on the last one. Waiting around in line at the DMV is the equivalent of spending your afternoon trapped inside a subway car, so his hesitancy in procuring license plates seems completely reasonable.
The report also stated that Beasley had a loaded 45 caliber in the car that officers held onto until “the traffic stop was complete.” In addition, he reportedly displayed “slow speech and slow responses” when asked if he had been drinking or had taken medication, but it was determined he was sober after a “DUI investigation.” While Beasley was initially placed in handcuffs and arrested, officers cut him a break due to his cooperation but also because one officer deemed the 6’10 forward would not fit well in the backseat of the police car. Makes perfect sense. I’m guessing that being a member of the Phoenix Suns played no part in inspiring said break.
Beasley is scheduled to appear in court on February 11, though he will not be driving his Mercedes to the appearance, as it’s been impounded for 30 days.
