Minnesota Vikings first-round pick wide receiver Jordan Addison was cited early Thursday for reckless driving after going 140 mph in a Lamborghini Urus, according to Minnesota State Police.
The police incident report, which was posted on social media by multiple reporters, says a state trooper was traveling east on Interstate 94 near Dale Street when the Urus was going 140 mph in a 55 mph zone.
Pulling over the driver identified Addison, the 21-year-old player who was drafted 23rd overall by the Vikings from USC.

Addison received a citation for speeding and reckless driving.
«We are aware of last night’s traffic incident involving Jordan Addison and are gathering additional information,» the Vikings said in a statement, according to NFL Network.
JUSTIN JEFFERSON’S MADDEN RATING IS REVEALED AHEAD OF GAME’S LAUNCH
The 6-foot, 175-pound Addison excelled at USC last season with 875 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games. That came after totaling 1,593 yards and 18 total touchdowns during his 2021 season at Pitt in the ACC.
Addison was part of a historic streak in the 2023 NFL Draft, where four consecutive wide receivers were taken from picks 20-24, with Addison coming fourth and last in the first round.
Jaxon Smith-Nijgba (Seattle Seahawks), Quentin Johnston (Los Angeles Chargers) and Zay Flowers (Baltimore Ravens) went before him.
Heading into this season, Addison is expected to play a big role in the Vikings’ offense as veteran Adam Thielen is no longer in Minnesota. Addison could well fit in with Justin Jefferson and KJ Osborn, with Kirk Cousins remaining under center.
It is not yet known if any discipline for Addison will come from the league or the Vikings.
