Vikings rookie Addison enters petition to plead guilty to driving 140 mph on I-94

Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison has agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge after he was cited last month for driving 140 mph on Interstate 94.

A court filing from Wednesday states that Minnesota’s first-round draft pick entered a petition to plead guilty to a petty misdemeanor speeding charge and pay $686 to settle the matter. If accepted by a judge, the misdemeanor reckless driving charge would be dismissed, according to the deal. He’ll also have his license revoked for six months, in accordance with state law.

The Minnesota State Patrol says a trooper pulled over Addison’s Lamborghini at around 3 a.m. on July 20 after seeing the vehicle going around 140 mph on I-94 near Dale Street in St. Paul.

A citation summary notes that Addison told the trooper his dog was having an emergency and that’s why he was speeding.

The rookie released a statement the following day, saying, “Yesterday morning I made a mistake and used poor judgment. I recognize and own that. I am going to learn from this and not repeat the behavior. I am truly sorry.”

The 21-year-old is expected to have a large role in the Vikings’ offense this season.
