Phoenix Suns forward Michael Beasley is due in court next week after being stopped by Scottsdale, Ariz. police for speeding, reports AZSports.com.

Beasley was pulled over on Jan. 25 when the vehicle he was driving did not have a license plate and the authorities saw no sign of a temporary tag in the window.  Beasley was also found with a gun in the vehicle and police said his Arizona license had been suspended since last October.

He was cited for driving with a suspended license, driving with excessive speed, driving with expired registration and failure to display a license plate on the rear of the vehicle. Driving with a suspended license and excessive speeding are criminal traffic violations, whereas driving with expired registration and failure to display a license plate are civil traffic violations.
Beasley, who is averaging 10.6 points a game while only shooting 39.7 percent, is due in court on Feb. 13.
