Cardinals defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche was arrested earlier this month for speeding and driving on a suspended license. According to police he was driving 75 mph in a 45 mph zone.
There was also a white powder consistent with cocaine found in the car. For some reason it was destroyed by police instead of being tested.
Via ABC 15:
According to the report, 24-year-old Nkemdiche was going 75 MPH in a 45 MPH zone when he was pulled over.
Nkemdiche told police he was on his way to practice, which started at 7 a.m., when he was stopped around 6:30 a.m. near Scottsdale Road and Shea Boulevard.
During the stop, it was discovered that Nkemdiche had a warrant issued for his arrest for driving on a suspended license and failing to appear for a court hearing.
The report also states that police found a white powdery substance, consistent with cocaine, in a small credit card case in his center console. However, police say the substance was not tested, and instead was impounded for destruction, with Nkemdiche’s consent.
Nkemdiche came into the league back in 2016 following an arrest for marijuana. It looks like some of those red flags are starting to show themselves.
