Rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison, the top pick of the 2023 NFL Draft for the Minnesota Vikings, got himself into some legal trouble on Thursday morning of this week.

Numerous reports, including from ESPN writer Kevin Seifert, state that Addison was given a citation for going over double the speed limit on a highway in the Twin Cities area on Thursday morning (July 20).

Addison was reportedly cited for speed and reckless driving after an officer with the Minnesota State Patrol reported him going 140 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone just outside of St. Paul.

Twin Cities TV station KSTP reports that a trooper traveling eastbound on Interstate 94 near Dale Street (just west of St. Paul, as seen as the red pin in the map below) witnessed a driver traveling at 140 mph in a 55 mph zone in a Lamborghini Urus at around 3 am Thursday morning.
