Miami Heat's Michael Beasley had speeding citation in D.C.

Miami Heat's Michael Beasley had speeding citation in D.C.
Nov. 22--Michael Beasley's homecoming this week to Washington was soured by more than his foul-filled, six-point effort against the Wizards.

A source familiar with the situation confirmed Friday that the Miami Heat rookie forward was cited for speeding Monday night, as he visited with family members.

According to the source, Beasley was brought in by the police "at the officer's discretion" after being cited for traveling at an excessive speed. No other violations were cited, the source said.

Beasley did not mention the incident at Tuesday's 94-87 Heat victory at the Verizon Center against the Wizards, but made the team aware of being cited.

The No. 2 overall selection in last June's NBA Draft out of Kansas State was fined $50,000 by the NBA in September for violations at the league's rookie transition program, when improper female guests and the scent of marijuana were found present in a hotel room utilized for the symposium.

Beasley initially denied involvement in that incident, which previously had led to $20,000 fines for teammate Mario Chalmers and Memphis Grizzlies rookie forward Darrell Arthur.

In the wake of that incident, Beasley said, "I made a bad mistake. I frown upon it myself. All I can do is look forward and try to be the best player and person I can be for the team."

The 19-year-old said he initially shut off his cell phone upon his Sunday arrival in Washington, but later conceded, "I went back around my neighborhood and hung out with the people that were trying to call. So I kind of defeated the purpose."

The Heat, which plays the Indiana Pacers tonight at AmericanAirlines Arena, declined comment. The team hosted a Thanksgiving event at the Miami Rescue Mission following Friday's practice.
