Document: Jayson Werth’s reckless driving ticket

August 13, 2014

After news spread Tuesday night that Jayson Werth of the Washington Nationals had picked up a reckless driving charge last month, Post reporter Justin Jouvenal went to the Fairfax County courthouse and picked up a copy of the ticket.

It confirms that Werth is accused of going 105 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone, apparently on the Capital Beltway near the Georgetown Pike exit. It occurred at 9:36 a.m. on Sunday, July 6, according to the ticket written by Virginia State Police Trooper P.L. Green, and Werth was driving a 2011 Porsche north on the Beltway. The Nats had played an afternoon game on Saturday and had a 1:30 game that Sunday, both victories over the Chicago Cubs.

We have put in a call to Werth’s lawyers and will add their comment here. The charge is scheduled to be tried on Nov. 12.
