Video obtained by multiple news agencies show a Nevada State Police trooper putting Las Vegas Raider Nate Hobbs into handcuffs while asking him why he was driving 110 mph on the freeway.
“Why am I being detained?” Hobbs asked the trooper last month.
Hobbs told the trooper he was heading to a meeting.
“You’re being detained for reckless driving right now,” the trooper said to Hobbs. “You were going over 110 miles an hour making several lane changes and not signally, cutting off charges, I have enough to take you to jail on reckless driving today. It’s all on camera.”
That’s when the Raiders cornerback could be heard begging the trooper not to arrest him.
“I’ve already been arrested two weeks ago,” Hobbs said. “Please, I’m begging you. I’m betting you. I cannot be arrested. This is my career.”
The trooper cited Hobbs for reckless driving for the high rate of speed as well as lane changes without signaling. The cornerback pleaded guilty to a careless driving charge in the Jan. 16 incident.
Hobbs was ordered to pay a $685 fine, complete with a victim impact panel and 20 hours of community service as part of his agreement with the DA’s office, according to an ESPN report.
Hobbs also pleaded guilty Wednesday to a reduced traffic charge stemming from another arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
