Docs: Richardson’s Other New Car, Georgia Plates

Yesterday SbB reported Chilton County, Alabama, public court records showed Trent Richardson was driving a “GMC YUKON” with a “Vehicle year” of 2011 - and was listed as the owner of the SUV - when he was ticketed for speeding by an Alabama Highway Patrol Officer on August 28, 2011.

At the time of the infraction, the attending officer also noted as part of the “Details” section of the speeding ticket that Richardson “STATED HIS LARGE RIMS THROW SPEEDOMETER OFF.”

(Not again!)

According to Conecuh County, Alabama, public court records, Richardson was also involved in a traffic stop on Oct. 31, 2010, in which the accompanying ticket reported the star Alabama running back as the owner of a vehicle different from the 2011 GMC Yukon listed on the Chilton County ticket 10 months later.

After being pulled over on Halloween, 2010, for not wearing his seat belt, according to Conecuh County Alabama public court records Richardson claimed ownership of a 2010 Nissan Altima with a Georgia license plate. 10 months later an Alabama Highway Patrol Officer reported on a Richardson speeding ticket that the Crimson Tide football player was the owner of a “GMC YUKON” with a “Vehicle year” of 2011.

Considering that the NCAA has access to Richardson’s bank records - like all student-athletes under the auspices of the intercollegiate governing body - it wouldn’t take long for the NCAA to find out exactly how the Alabama star running back acquired two vehicles with a combined, base sticker price of over $60,000 in the span of 10 months.
