“After the officer ran Howard’s driver license and tag number through the National Crime Information Center, the car came up as having a suspended registration with no insurance, police said. When the officer told Howard what he found, Howard seemed “confused” and insisted that he had insurance, but couldn’t provide an insurance card when police asked for it.
REPORT: Dwight Howard Got Pulled Over & His Car Towed on Night Hawks Got Eliminated
Game 6 of their first round series against the Washington Wizards would be the last time the Atlanta Hawks would be seen in action until next season as they got dismantled by a score of 115-99.
Just a few hours later, Dwight Howard would find himself pulled over for speeding on I-285.
It was a good thing Howard’s security guard was following him in a black SUV, because Howard’s car was towed away for not having insurance and he was also driving on a suspended registration.
The officer wrote Howard a ticket for his lack of insurance and then gave the 6-foot-11 center a verbal warning for speeding and suspended registration. Brown and Brown Towing towed the vehicle, police said.
A Hawks spokesman declined to comment Monday on the incident involving Howard.”
Howard averaged 13.5 points per game this past season with his hometown Hawks, his lowest average since his rookie season.
