ST. LOUIS (AP) — New York Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson is scheduled for a court appearance on charges of resisting arrest and traffic counts stemming from a police chase.
Monday's hearing in St. Charles County, Missouri, comes a day after Richardson completed a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
The former University of Missouri star has pleaded not guilty to the charges. He lives in O'Fallon in the offseason.
Richardson was arrested July 14 after allegedly driving his 2014 Bentley at speeds up to 143 mph on Interstate 64, with a 12-year-old relative and two men inside the car.
Police say they found a loaded handgun under a floor mat and detected a strong marijuana odor.
If convicted of resisting arrest, Richardson could get up to a year in jail.
