As documented here the past 48 hours, Alabama court records and a Facebook-dated photo link Trent Richardson and his mother Katrina to five separate vehicles in the last two years.
Traffic court documents show the Alabama football star as owner of a GMC Yukon and Nissan Altima in just the past 10 months - in addition to Richardson being seen gassing up another large SUV in a photo dated August 12, 2010, and posted on the now-deleted Facebook account of formally disassociated Alabama booster Tom Al-Betar.
Alabama public court records also show Katrina Richardson was driving separate rental cars during her most recent traffic stops inside the state.
Trent Richardson though is not the only member of the Crimson Tide shown to own multiple vehicles in recent Alabama court documents. Read more…
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.
(2011 Yukon: Stripped sticker = $40,000)
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.”
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.

A year after disassociated Alabama booster Tom Al-Betar added the below Facebook photo of Trent Richardson gassing up a large SUV, Richardson was pulled over for speeding in the city of Clanton, Alabama.
Chilton County (AL) public court records show the attending Alabama Highway Patrol Officer reported on August 28, 2011, that Richardson was driving a “GMC YUKON” with a “Vehicle year” of 2011. The law enforcement officer also noted as part of the “Details” section of the speeding ticket that Richardson “STATED HIS LARGE RIMS THROW SPEEDOMETER OFF.”
Richardson was also reported as the owner of the GMC Yukon in the same speeding ticket.
Considering 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 a vehicle with a current base sticker price of $38,945.
That’s without the “LARGE RIMS“.
