Portland Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson was cited by Portland police over the weekend for driving 107 miles per hour. From the Oregonian:

An officer “observed a white 2013 Porsche Panamera traveling at a high rate of speed on the freeway,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson, Portland Police Bureau, in an email. “The officer’s LIDAR would clock the vehicle at 107 MPH in a 55 MPH zone.”

Robinson was cited for violation of the Basic Rule (100 MPH +), which carries a fine of $1,150, Simpson said.

Robinson was polite and cooperative during the encounter, Simpson said.

On Sunday morning, Robinson tweeted the following: “Apologies for that speeding ticket rip city gotta be more careful with watching the speed limit my first and last one tho for sure”
