New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson was arrested and charged with resisting arrest after a high speed chase following a road race where he was allegedly driving his 2014 Bentley 143 mph near his home in St. Louis. Police say his car had a "strong odor of burned marijuana" and that they found a loaded semi-automatic weapon in his vehicle as well.
The arrest coming four days after Richardson received a four game suspension for violating the league's drug abuse policy.
If convicted, Richardson could face up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
The Jets organization declined comment as legal proceedings are pending.
