LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -New York Knicks center Randolph Morris pleaded guilty Friday to reckless driving and agreed to pay a $100 fine.
Morris, who was scheduled to appear in Fayette District Court for a preliminary hearing, didn't attend. His attorney, Jim Lowry, entered the guilty plea on his behalf and said the fine and court costs would be paid Friday. He declined to comment further.
The former University of Kentucky star was arrested Aug. 7 in Lexington after an officer spotted him driving 62 mph - 17 mph over the speed limit - and failing to use a turn signal as he drove down an exit ramp.
Morris smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes, according to the arrest report. He acknowledged he had been drinking 30 minutes earlier and was given a preliminary breath test at the scene, with his blood alcohol level showing .069, below Kentucky's legal limit of .08.
Morris signed with the Knicks in March after playing for Kentucky in the NCAA tournament. He played in five games for New York.
