WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Dallas Mavericks forward Josh Howard was arrested in his hometown after police said he was drag racing on a Winston-Salem street.

He is charged with speeding (94 mph in a 55 mph zone), careless and reckless driving, and speed competition. He has been released from the Forsyth County jail on a written promise to appear in court Sept. 23.

Police said an officer saw a black Lexus and a silver Volkswagen speeding along U.S. 421 late Thursday night. The officer stopped the Lexus, and Howard was identified as the driver. Authorities didn't identify the other driver.

Howard played in high school in nearby Kernersville and was a standout at Wake Forest.

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, Howard is in town this week for a basketball camp sponsored by his foundation.

The Dallas Mavericks drafted Howard in the first round of the 2003 NBA draft, and was named to the All-Star team in 2007.

Can you say, on the block. Josh Howard is dumber than i though, drag racing near 100mph in a 55mph zone?

What i found funny was that the other guy got away, bad luck for Howard.

I bet he claims race as an issue, the other driver was white, and thats why they pulled him over.

Why not just like rent out an municipal airport, and drag there??
What a way to screw up his career.

Apparently you must, since you clicked the link. Anyway, what a moron-some people on the DMN blog are saying its immaturity. He's 28-if he's not learning anything after this ugly postseason, he's clearly developmentally delayed.
And street racing is dangerous, since people have been killed. If he wants to destroy himself, he should find a way to do so without involving others.

A pot head speeding? That is contradictory in itself. He should have been arested for driving too slow

I don't see Josh being on the Mavs for that long now...he said he changed and wanted another chance but he's gone to far this time somebody could have been killed even him.

And to add on this, when you're an NBA or any sport player kids look up to you.

"Pass the Dutche to the left hand side". With all that money he has, I wouldn't doubt that Howard not only blazes the Kush but probably slangs it too. He just might be the lil Wayne of the NBA.
