I’ve avoided this topic for the last couple of days for a number of reasons, mostly revolving around the fact that I don’t really care about J.R. Smith in any form or fashion. However, while reading the article regarding his recent car accident, in which his friend Andre Bell died, I see that Smith has had his license suspended FIVE TIMES IN THE LAST YEAR. Even worse, his license is currently in “good standing” despite the suspensions because he has paid all his restoration fees and fines.
According to the Newark Star Ledger, Smith has accumulated 27 points against his license from April 22nd, 2005 to January 10th, 2006, with eight separate violations on seven different dates (five of the eight were for speeding). Smith’s latest license suspension came on February 7th of last year (maybe he had a New Year’s resolution to cut down on the dangerous driving).
There really is only one question regarding this situation: HOW THE HELL DOES THIS GUY STILL HAVE A LICENSE?????
