Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters hit the courthouse Wednesday to take care of two separate issues.
One was the settlement in a lawsuit against the company that makes the 'Roll-A-Bout' knee walker, which Peters used when he was recovering from his initial Achilles surgery. The handlebar broke, causing him to reinjure the area and have a second operation, according to the Associated Press, via PFT. Peters received $2 million in the judgement.
While at the court in Monroe, La., he also cleared up the drag racing charges from last month. Peters was arrested on June11th for drag racing and resisting a police officer by flight, police said.
On Wednesday he was able to get the charges reduced to driving with improper equipment and resisting an officer by flight. He paid a $656.50 fine and avoided an arraignment over the case, according to the Phildelphia Inquirer. The case is now closed.
