    Believe it or not in Colorado you are arrested and jailed if caught driving on a suspended license because it's an automatic 5 day jail sentence plus a fine. On a second offense I believe it can be up to a 45 day jail sentence and a fine. Crazy but true and what happens when a state can pass laws like this as part of a statue the public has no awareness of at all.

    And what's really crazy is the statute makes no distinction between a suspension that wasn't imposed because of multiple traffic violations or a DUI and one that may have happened due to an administrative oversight or simply showed a temporary suspension pending and appeal or a clarification. If you get stopped for a broken tail light warning and your license shows under suspension they will cuff you and take you to jail right then and there. Surprise, surprise.

    I thought he had a reasonable chance at making the roster until this happened. Now I think he's going to have to really shine in training camp. This is gut check time.

    Well if your a bubble player, rule number one is do not make headlines for the wrong reasons. If it were a toss up for a roster spot, something like this could be the deciding factor.

    But to play the other side of the coin....


    My girlfriend who has never even had a speeding ticket in her life had her license suspended for a parking ticket that she didn't know she had gotten. It was suspended for a year before it expired and she found out when she went to renew it. So I guess I'm just saying that this is not a good thing for him, but in his defense it may be something very simple. Guess the only one who needs to know the whole story is Emery.

    OMG what is with you people you act like he just robbed your grandmothers house. I was speeding and driving on a suspended license, for all we know he didn't even know his license was suspended, that can happen to anyone that lives in more then one place part of the year.

    Lets try to find something that is more of interest to bitch about then two traffic tickets that he already paid.

    Exactly. The media is searching for anything they can to make a story out of. If he was caught jay walking THAT'S a story! He got a ticket for speeding and in the process they found his license was under suspension. It could have been exactly the same thing that happened to your girlfriend. That's how they catch up with it, a traffic stop or a renewal.

    So usually all you do is pay the fine and they lift the suspension. It's all about money and that's all it's about. I've had mine suspended over the dumbest administrative screw ups you can imagine that had nothing to do with any traffic offenses or even an unpaid fine. The guy got a speeding ticket and that's all it was. Why make a big deal out of it?

    If all of our jobs were at risk over a simple speeding violation I'd have lost my job about a half dozen times back when I was living in Wisconsin and the highway speed limit was 55 mph. Ever since they raised in again I haven't one. Man, it's gonna be a dry month for news until camp starts so get ready for even more stuff like this.

    Bottom line is, he knew his license was suspended..yeah petty crime but shouldn't have been driving! Kid should be working out and fixing his game instead of being a punk... I say Bear Down, tie up the loose ends and cut the fool. He was garbage anyways, bring back Izzy...no jk hes old.

    ya he had no idea his license was suspended, b/c that shit NEVER happens after you get a DUI while speeding.....wtsf.

    listen if this was a potential starter seriously nothing would happen, but this is a guy that's already on the bubble as it is, and that's where little things like this start to matter.

    While this is an everyday thing for society, if I was in his shoes and wanted to make the team, I'd take the damn bus to work.

    I just don't feel for him.
