Jordan Hill's tenure with the Indiana Pacers is off to a rocky start. Per the team's official release, Hill was arrested for reckless driving while in Atlanta:

"We have been informed Jordan was arrested for allegedly reckless driving in Atlanta, Georgia. It is obvious we don't condone this. We will address this with Jordan. This is a major concern of safety, not just for Jordan, but for others."

Hill was allegedly exceeding speeds of 100 mph in his Range Rover when several witnesses called to report the new Pacers player, says TMZ.

Mike Pethchenik of WSB-TV Atlanta shared the following recorded footage from the arrest:

Hill was recently signed by the Pacers to a one-year, $5 million deal. The 8th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft averaged a career-high 12.0 points and 7.9 rebounds last season with the Lakers.

Hill has yet to release a statement on this matter.
