Saints top receiver Chris Olave arrested in Louisiana, charged with reckless driving

New Orleans Saints top receiver Chris Olave was arrested Monday night and charged with reckless driving after police say he was speeding through a New Orleans suburb.

The 2022 first-round draft pick was arrested at around 9 p.m. after the Kenner Police Department said he was observed “recklessly maneuvering” between lanes and around drivers and traveling at 70 mph in a 35 mph zone.

“Officers clocked a Dodge Charger traveling at 70 mph in a posted 35 mph zone. The distance from where the vehicle turned off from Williams Boulevard and where the vehicle was clocked at that speed was only a two-block distance,” a press release reads.

The Saints are coming off a 31-24 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and will next travel to Indianapolis for a Week 8 matchup against the Colts.
