In most places in the US, driving your car 109 mph will lead to you being placed in the back of a police cruiser. But that’s most places. Suburban Minneapolis apparently doesn’t fall under the “most places” umbrella.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was cited for speeding over the weekend after police clocked him driving 109 mph on a highway in suburban Minneapolis.
Edina (ee-DYE’-nuh) police spokeswoman Molly Anderson says Peterson was pulled over just before 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
Peterson was driving his BMW on a state highway in a 55-mph zone. Anderson says he was given a citation and allowed to drive away. She called it a “very routine” traffic stop.
When did driving 50+ mph over the speed limit become a “very routine” traffic stop?
The stop happened the night before Peterson ran for 85 yards and a touchdown in a 36-10 victory over Chicago.
Oh, now it makes sense.
