    Joey Porter drove on a restrained driver's license and was ticketed for speeding May 3, 1999. He missed a final court date in Fort Collins, Colo., while he was in training camp with the Steelers his rookie season, and, Wednesday, turned himself into local authorities.

    Porter was released on $1,100 bond, nearly 14 years after he was expected to be in court, Aug. 16, 1999.

    Porter is serving as a student assistant coach with Colorado State, the school Porter attended through the first semester of the 1998-99 school year. He was a third round pick of the Steelers in the 1999 NFL Draft.

    This is hilarious. 1999? It's not like Colorado didn't know where Porter was the past 14 years.

    Thank goodness Colorado didn't issue an arrest warrant in Arizona while Porter played for the Cards. Nothing would have given Sheriff Joe Arpaio a stiffer woody than throwing him in Tent City while awaiting extradition.
