Kevin Ware said Tuesday that he plans to plead guilty to speeding and reckless driving charges and move forward with any punishment he receives.

The Louisville junior guard, whose gruesome right leg injury sustained during the Cardinals' NCAA title run last spring made him an inspirational figure, answered media questions Tuesday night about missing a Monday court date to face charges of driving a 2013 Dodge Challenger 95 mph in a construction zone on Interstate 65 late on Oct. 26.

Ware's court date in Barren County Circuit Court was rescheduled for Monday. The player said he plans to represent himself and plead guilty to the charges.

"It's a speeding ticket," Ware said. "I'm going to go to court and handle the situation and that's going to be that."
