CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio judge has issued a warrant for Cleveland Cavaliers forward J.J. Hickson after he failed to show up for two hearings about a speeding ticket.
Judge Mark Hassett issued a warrant on Monday after Hickson did not appear in Chardon Municipal Court for hearings on June 7 and June 14. A clerk says Hickson had not shown up in court by Wednesday, just minutes before the office closed.
Police cited Hickson on May 27 for allegedly driving 61 mph in a 25 mph zone in central Ohio.
Hickson's lawyer, Henry Hilow, said he was unaware of the warrant on Wednesday afternoon. He did not return a message seeking further comment.
Hickson faces another speeding charge in Rocky River Municipal Court from June 23. He's been convicted on four other speeding charges in Rocky River.
