That's the face of a man who's been through this before, friends. You'd think he'd learn a lesson or two.
New York Knicks star and "diminutive slam-dunk expert" Nate Robinson has been arrested for driving on a suspended license, according to the New York Post.
Tuesday afternoon, the unrestricted free agent guard — whose license was suspended in June for the fifth time! — had his vehicle pulled over by the NYPD in The Bronx on suspicion of having illegally tinted windows. Well, at least that was Nate's tweet reasoning. We're still not exactly sure.
"Cops pulled me over cuz my windows were 2 dark (but my windows were down) lol how funny is that," the 5-foot, 7-inch guard posted on Twitter while waiting
on his Big Wheel in his car with Nets' rookie Terrence Williams(notes).
Robinson also tweeted that the cops kept him waiting too long for his liking while they processed his papers: "I am still pulled over and its been 35 min they have me sit in my truck like i dnt have s#*+2 do lol," he wrote.
The tweets have since been removed from Robinson's feed, but Tweleted, an online program which recovers deleted messages Twitter messages for good or evil, confirms they were indeed there.
The arrest is the latest in a long list of motor-vehicle-related troubles for Robinson. According to DMV records dug up by The Post, Nate has been cited and/or ticketed over the last three years for disobeying a traffic signal, failing to signal, driving without his seat belt on and talking on a cell phone.
Some words of advice, Nate: Buy a bus pass.
