University of Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson was pulled over in Newberry at 4:11 a.m. on April 4 and cited for driving 105 mph in a 60 mph zone. Because he was driving more than 30 mph over the speed limit, he is required to appear at a Zoom arraignment hearing on May 25. The hearing may be rescheduled if he files a plea of “Not Guilty” before May 20.

An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy pulled Richardson over on West Newberry Road between the Dudley Farm Historic State Park and the intersection with CR 235. He was driving a 2021 four-door Dodge; WCJB reported last November that Richardson signed a Name, Image, and Likeness deal with Gainesville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and was the “proud owner of a new Dodge Durango.”

    • Getting a bachelors at the best university in the state but he’s stupid because he’s speeding on an empty road at 4am? Shut up you unreasonable, bored, systemically brainwashed pawn.

      • Yeah, Marvins right…he’s a stupid ass. He could have killed himself or somebody if he got in an accident at that unlawful speed… Wonder if the deputy conducted a field sobriety test? 105 in a 60mph zone? They should take his license away.

      • Road isn’t empty at 4 a.m., if it was he wouldn’t have been on it and neither would the deputy. He was careless and irresponsible though.
        If he would have caused the death of someone you knew I sincerely doubt you would be so “forgiving.”

        But hey, the liberal lunatics could keep campaigning to ban “AR 15s.”

      • Being educated doesn’t mean he is not stupid. Reckless endangerment of self and others? Doesn’t sound smart to me.

  • Should have at least been arrested. Cop could have delayed the processing a little to he reached the jail too late for first appearance that morning. Would have to stay in jail until the next day. And, likely the only punishment received for this crime.
