Leinart in Danger of Violating the Pac-man Jones Rule

Because it is a slow news day in Phoenix:

Loop 101 speed-enforcement cameras snapped Leinart's 2006 Chevrolet three times within five days in March, and one of the city's other street cameras caught him once in June.

Neither Leinart, nor his representatives, could be reached for comment.
[...]
Leinart is scheduled to be arraigned on the March speeding citations next Wednesday, and again on April 30, in Scottsdale City Court.
[...]
Leinart, who made $9 million last year, could pay the fines and stay out of court. Or, if he claims he is not the driver, Leinart could ask for a hearing.

And just in case folks in Phoenix don't know who Matt Leinart is, they add this tidbit at the end of the story:

The former University of Southern California star led the Trojans to back-to-back national college football championships in 2003 and 2004; was the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner; the Rose Bowl Most Valuable Player in 2004; and the Orange Bowl MVP in 2005.

For the Cardinals last year, Leinart completed 214 of 377 passes for 2,547 yards and 11 touchdowns, and rushed for two more touchdowns, but was intercepted 12 times. The Cardinals won 4 and lost 8 during the dozen games that Leinart played.

Supreme Court upholds Partial Birth Abortion ban 5-4. VA Tech Student kills 32. Car bombs in Baghdad kill over 150 people.

Nah, we got a QB for the Cardinals that does 77 in a 65 twice in four days. I am glad that Carol Sowers of the Arizona Republic is assigned to the hard hitting news beat of the Scottsdale Traffic Court.

BTW, this reminds me that I have to pay a ticket myself because my driver's license is probably already suspended.
