Busted New York Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson is facing legal troubles after being charged Thursday in St. Charles County, Missouri, with resisting arrest and traffic violations on July 14 — just two weeks after his NFL-issued four-game drug suspension. According to a release issued by the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Richardson was driving at “exceedingly high rates of speed” on Interstate 64 in “what appeared to be a road race.” In the police incident report, an officer stated that Richardson took off at speeds as high as 143 mph. Richardson eventually exited the car, along with two adult passengers and a 12-year-old boy. A fully loaded semi-automatic handgun was found underneath the driver’s floor mat, and the car smelled of marijuana. Pleaded Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer has pleaded not guilty to a charge that he punched a boy in the face for using his beach chairs in Florida. The sheriff’s office says Kromer was arrested earlier this month after confronting two boys, pushing one to the ground and punching him. An arrest report says the boy told deputies that Kromer threatened to kill his family if he reported the incident.
