According to a report obtained through a FOIA request, it has been learned that Suns forward Michael Beasley, on January 25, was pulled over by Scottsdale Police due to speeding down Scottsdale Road at about 1:10 a.m.

He was cited for driving with a suspended license, driving with excessive speed, driving with expired registration and failure to display a license plate on the rear of the vehicle. Driving with a suspended license and excessive speeding are criminal traffic violations, whereas driving with expired registration and failure to display a license plate are civil traffic violations.

The report states the officer placed Beasley in handcuffs and arrested him, but decided to release him at the scene due to his cooperation.

Beasley is scheduled to appear in court on February 11, 2013.

According to police, the officer originally noticed the 2009 Mercedes did not have a license plate and saw no sign of a temporary tag in the window.

The report says the vehicle was heading south and was paced at around 71 MPH near E. Doubletree Ranch, and after using the radar gun to confirm the rate of speed, the officer "initiated a traffic stop on the subject vehicle." The posted speed limit was 45 MPH.

From there it was learned that Beasley, 24, was the driver. There were passengers in the car with him.

The officer reported that Beasley handed him an Arizona ID card and said he did not have proof of registration on him because he was waiting for his new one to arrive in the mail.

According to the report, the officer noticed Beasley to have "slow speech and slow responses", but said no when asked if he had had anything to drink or taken any medications or drugs.
