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.
