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.”
