Nick Young, JaVale McGee Charged with Reckless Driving

Guard Nick Young and center JaVale McGee were charged with reckless driving after being pulled over for speeding on the Dulles Access Road on Jan. 1.

The incident was first reported by WJLA (Channel 7) on Monday. Under Virginia law, a driver can be charged with reckless driving for going more than 20 miles over the speed limit as well as other offenses including driving over 80 mph and racing.


Young said he and McGee were in a hurry to get to the airport in time for the team’s flight to Boston, where the Wizards had a game the following night.

Young also said that he and McGee were not racing.

"Nah," Young said. "We were just a little late and trying to get out there for the flight."
