Morris Pleads Guilty To Reckless Driving Charge

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - New York Knicks center Randolph Morris has
pleaded guilty to reckless driving and agreed to pay a fine.

Morris did NOT attend today's preliminary hearing in Fayette District Court. His attorney, Jim Lowry, entered the guilty plea on his behalf and said the $100 fine and court costs would be paid today.

The former University of Kentucky star was arrested August seventh in Lexington after an officer spotted him driving 17 miles per hour over the speed limit, and failing to use a turn signal as he sped down an exit ramp.

Morris acknowledged he had been drinking 30 minutes earlier. His blood alcohol level was determined to be less than Kentucky's legal limit.
