Actually it has a lot to do with bad driving. If you were able to drive around knowing that any traffic infraction you might commit would not result in monetary hardship or a loss of license, you would probably be less likely to obey the laws. When you have money, you can get your license suspended 5 times in a year and still be in good standing at the DMV. I agree with you, poor people run stop signs too, but the mentality with many celebrities and sports stars is that they don't have to be responsible. I feel for him, and I know the loss of his friend will weigh heavily on him, not to mention what he has to deal with in relation to the law. Let's just hope there wasn't alcohol or drugs involved.
I understand your point. Paris Hilton is a prime example of that

The Nuggets ...and the rest of the NBA should start with an immediate firing of thugs like J.R. Smith. The problem is out of control. What a sad commentary that the NBA allows these types of behavior to continue.

If he is licensed in Colorado, the DMV should be partially liable. He would be considered a Habitual Offender under Colorado law, having that many suspensions within one year. The least amount of time for a single suspension is three months, unless it is for being a deadbeat for child support. That translates into 15 months minimum to include a total of five suspensions. He should legally have had his licensed pulled after the third violation and not have been eligible to reinstate his license for five years. Exemption because of star status is completely unacceptable. I am certainly not done with this.

How can any state allow someone's driver license to be suspended 5 times in one year. Sounds like special treatment to me. Then there are alot of people that drive with a suspended license that don't get punished either. What a country!!

Mr. Smith has been released from the hospital and now I think its time for the Denver Nuggets to release Mr. Smith from the organization. We can assume that he will be brought up on manslaughter charges for killing his friend. With Mr. Smith's prior driving record I think his license should be revoked forever so his recklessness does not kill anyone else.

Sounds like this idiot shouldn't be driving. And look at the price...someone paid with their LIFE. I wonder if Mr. Smith cares about that at all...

pretty arrogant of him to expect to drive like an idiot, having his license suspended five time over the past year, and then expect sympathy-- jail time is appropriate, but then, maybe he will call al sharpton and play the race card to get off.

Too bad some athletes learn the hard way their no better than anyone else. If only the passenger was smart enough not to copy Just Retarded (I mean) J.R Smith and put on a seat belt.
