The Delaware River Port Authority Police e-mailed a statement to The Inquirer on Monday revealing that Jahlil Okafor received two citations after being pulled over for driving 108 m.p.h. on the Ben Franklin Bridge.

He was cited for reckless driving and driving at an excessive rate of speed on Oct. 19, according to the statement.

Four sources confirmed to The Inquirer on Sunday that Okafor had been pulled over for speeding. The normal speed limit on the bridge is 45 m.p.h.

That news came days after it was revealed that Okafor had been involved in two altercations while leaving nightclubs.

The 6-foot-11, 265-pounder had a gun pointed at his head on Oct. 4 near Second and Walnut Streets in Philadelphia, five people told The Inquirer. The suspect got away, according to a U.S. Park Service police report. Early Thursday morning, Okafor was involved in a fight outside the Storyville Nightclub in Boston's Back Bay, caught on video hours after Wednesday night's loss to the Boston Celtics.
