Lakers' Ron Artest Stopped By CHP While Driving What Appears To Be Full-On Race Car
Wall Street Journal

Turns out, according to the Wall Street Journal, the one-seat, open-wheeled vehicle is actually street legal. The 152-mile-an-hour capable Eagle Roadster has all the necessary lights and bumpers. But ... Artest allegedly didn't have his registration up-to-date and received a ticket.
