Police in Minnesota handed Vikings wide receiver Jordan Addison a ticket for going 140 MPH in his Lamborghini Urus on Thursday.

The Minnesota State Police reports that a state trooper was moving eastbound on Interstate 94 when he clocked Addison, going 140 mph in a 55 mph zone, according to Fox News.

Addison was issued a citation for speeding and reckless driving, the state patrol said in a statement.

The team also put out a statement on the incident.

“We are aware of last night’s traffic incident involving Jordan Addison and are gathering additional information,” the Vikings said in a statement, per NFL Network.

Addison was the Vikings’ first-round pick, and the team expects great things from the 21-year-old player for the coming season.
