Malik Monk Was In A Car Wreck Sunday Morning
Read Here

1. Is he getting coffee at 5:45am?
2. Why is the 11th pick in the NBA driving a 2002 Lexus?


quote:

Malik Monk, an Arkansas native who was drafted 11th overall by the NBA's Charlotte Hornets last year, was uninjured after the vehicle he was driving crashed in Fayetteville on Sunday morning, records show.

The University of Arkansas Police Department cited Monk on charges of careless driving and no proof of insurance after the single-vehicle wreck, which was reported around 5:45 a.m. at the entrance to Road Hog Park in the 1100 block of West 15th Street. A March 9 court date is set.




quote:

No one else was listed as being in Monk's red 2002 Lexus, and no injuries were reported. A tow form released by police shows the vehicle's front end and various engine components were damaged.

1. Coffee at 0545 isn't all that ridiculous

2. This is the same guy that said the NBA life is boring. He seems to enjoy the simple things in life from his interviews.

with the amount of playing time he's getting, he probably isn't sure how much money that next contract is going to bring

glad he's ok though

That's not all that uncommon

not everyone feels the need to spend all their money right when they get it. Lexus is a great car and they last forever.

When I go in early that's about the time I'm getting coffee.

Must've traded in that car that Cal bought him to come to Kentucky.

An athlete is showing fiscal responsibility and the OP wants to question it? Monk deserves praise if he's taking care of his money.

True but he's still got the KY money too.

True again, I'm driving one myself now- right about 10. But I'm not a car changer, pretty much drive them til they are dead then move on.

He might be fiscally responsible but he has no excuse to be driving without proof of insurance with his salary.

Right? They get bashed for buying new cars and now get bashed for not buying new cars.

Yep. This is where people's gripes should be.

Probably the same reason an all pro running back drives a 1991 Mazda

Maybe he has insurance but just forgot to put the new insurance card in his car when his policy renewed.

Happened to me one time. Got pulled over for speeding and my insurance card had expired a few days before and I had the new card at home and forgotten to put it in my car. Told the cop I could get my agent or insurance company on the phone to confirm I was still current but cop said nope, that I had to have a current card with me. Gave me a ticket for speeding and no proof of insurance. Judge dropped the no insurance part when I went to court to pay the speeding fine and brought the renewal insurance card with me.

Cops can verify the coverage from their car.

At least Texas highway patrol can. I got pulled over and didn't have an updated one and he said it wasn't a problem.

It’s 2018. If you are insured with say All State you can simply pull your card up on the app

They can...if they're trying to not be a dick. Cop that gave me the ticket was one of those small rural town cops that have nothing better to do than speed traps and act like a-holes when they pull you over. Grant Parish...don't remember what little town it was though. Somewhere along 165.
