Phoenix Suns' Jason Richardson

has been suspended for one game after he got arrested Sunday night for driving 90 mph in a 35 mph zone with his 3 year old son in the backseat without a car seat. This, fresh off the heels of his Dec. 21 arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence. Jason referred to the DUI as “one stupid mistake I made.” After his latest arrest Jason says, “I just want to apologize to everybody — my teammates, my family, especially my fiancee. It’s a tough time for me. I’ve been questioned as a basketball player, questioned as a person, but my fatherhood in question is tough, because I try to be the best father I can be, and try to keep my kids out of harm’s way.”
