I am guilty of doing radio interviews while driving. Probably not the safest thing in the world, so I will try to do better. Portis was on with 1067TheFanDC.com talking about the Redskins drama when this happened according to USA Today. The interview was going well until Smoot and co-host Kevin Shafer bid him goodbye and he said: “Hey y’all no problem, you all just got me a speeding ticket.” Apparently the trooper was not impressed with Portis’ NFL credentials. While it was never established what team the trooper rooted for, the radio hosts did express concern he was a Ravens fan. “I shouldn’t have gave him my license, I should have just hit it,” Portis joked as he waited for the police officer to run his license. The hosts then asked if he’d gotten a ticket before. “This is probably my 30th one,” he said, later adding he was going 45 in a 30 mph zone. Portis ended up with two tickets, he said. He then tried to get the trooper to talk to the radio station. “I’ve got some friends that want to talk to you,” he said to the trooper, who he addressed as “Mr. Trooper.” 30 tickets seems a bit excessive, don’t give Clowney any goals to shoot for.
