Phoenix Suns forward cited for suspended license

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Scottsdale police say Phoenix Suns forward Michael Beasley was cited last month on suspicion of speeding, driving on a suspended Arizona license and driving without a vehicle license plate or registration.

The Suns issued a statement Monday saying they discussed the matter with Beasley "and at this time do not believe any further action by the club is warranted."

According to a police report, Beasley was stopped Jan. 25 on suspicion of driving 71 mph in a 45 mph zone.

Police say Beasley's Mercedes didn't have a license plate or temporary registration tag.

They say the 24-year-old Beasley had a Florida driver's license, but his Arizona driving privileges had been suspended Oct. 23 for failing to appear in Phoenix City Court.

Police say Beasley has a Feb. 11 court appearance.

Statement by the Phoenix Suns

"We are aware that Scottsdale Police stopped and cited Michael Beasley for motor vehicle infractions at approximately 1:10 a.m. on January 25, 2013.  After being briefly detained on-site, he was released.  According to the police report, Michael was 'cooperative' and 'no impairment was found' following field sobriety tests.  We have discussed the matter with Michael and at this time do not believe any further action by the Club is warranted."

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
