ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Former Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard recently had his driver's license suspended after he failed to pay a ticket for running a red light in Orange County.
Howard, who now plays for the Houston Rockets, received a ticket for the offense earlier this year, but didn't pay the $285 fine until Wednesday, so his license was suspended.
"He probably should've gotten his license suspended if he hasn't paid it for four months," said driver Mark Pollock.
But this is far from Howard's first run in with red-light running.
Channel 9's Deneige Broom checked court records and learned that Howard had eight tickets issued for right turns at the red light at Keller Road in Maitland. That road leads into the RDV Sports Complex.
Luis Rodriguez received a ticket at the same spot.
"It says you didn't stop, but you did. Then it says you didn't stop long enough, even if you did stop. I don't know if it's actually fair," said Rodriguez
In all Howard has received 10 red-light tickets since 2011, several toll violations and speeding tickets.
"If I've got to pay them, he should pay them," said Rodriguez
Broom learned that Howard paid the ticket and fine costs Wednesday afternoon and had his license reinstated.
