Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman was arrested after he was caught driving 93 mph in Grove City early Monday, police said.

Police said Chapman, 24, was pulled over after he was recorded speeding in a black 2010 Mercedes S63 on Interstate 71 North near Interstate 270 about 12:42 a.m. Monday.

Chapman was arrested after the officer discovered he had a suspended Kentucky driver’s license, according to a police report.(WLWT News 5)

There will be plenty of jokes now tying Chapman’s fastball velocity to his speeding. I’m sure many of them will suck so I won’t even attempt to make one.

Chapman is due in court on June 6th oh and he is out on bond.
