    Sacramento Kings guard and NBA Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans apologized to his team, fans and family on Tuesday after he was cited and released on Memorial Day on suspicion of reckless driving.

    "Apologies to fans, the Kings and my fam for bad decision making," Evans said via Twitter.

    "Driving is a privilege & speeding was a mistake. I've def learned my lesson." A California Highway Patrol air unit on Monday spotted Evans' black Mercedes S550 speeding westbound at more than 100 mph on Interstate 80 near Antelope.

    The air unit followed the car until it stopped at a park near Bell Road and Taylor Street in Sacramento, where a patrol car was able to catch up to Evans.

    The officer made a felony stop in which he detained Evans and his passenger. CHP representative Lizz Dutton said Evans was cooperative with the officer.
