Jason Peters Arrested for Drag Racing, Resisting Police
Perhaps Jason Peters is a fan of the "Fast and the Furious" movie franchise.
That could explain why the Eagles offensive tackle was arrested in Monroe, LA on Wednesday for drag racing and resisting police by flight.
According to The News Star who has knowledge of the arrest affidavit, Peters Camaro was seen engaging in high rates of speed with an unidentified sedan at a traffic light.
The police officer on the scene attempted to pull over the two racing vehicles, but Peters instead fled onto an interstate at "an extreme high rate of speed."
It was estimated that Peters speed reached over 100 mph on I-20 while the deputy was in pursuit.
Peters finally ended the chase exiting the interstate to a nearby shopping center parking lot and was subsequently arrested and transported to the Ouachita Correctional Center.
This is Peters second arrest in two years, both occurring in the state of Louisiana. In 2011, Peters was arrested for disturbing the peace while at a Rick Ross concert.
The Eagles released a statement to the media on Wednesday night acknowledging the reports and wouldn't have "any further comment due to the legal nature."
Peters is entering his fifth season with the Eagles, but missed the entire 2012 season after tearing the same Achilles tendon twice.
