NFL: Vikings’ Jordan Addison says dog emergency prompted speeding ticket for going 140 mph

STREET. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings first-round pick Jordan Addison told state trooper he saw him going 140 mph in a 55 mph zone last week that he was speeding due to an emergency involving his dog.

The Associated Press obtained an updated copy of the subpoena issued to Addison and filed with the St. Paul city attorney on Monday.

The Minnesota State Patrol said Addison was pulled over without resistance in a Lamborghini Urus at 3:07 a.m. Thursday by a trooper who was also traveling east on Interstate 94 in St. Paul, about a mile from downtown.

According to the subpoena, Addison said she was speeding because her dog had an emergency at her residence. The nature of the emergency was not disclosed.

Addison said in a statement that he made a mistake and used poor judgment. “I recognize and own that,” he said. “I am going to learn from this and not repeat the behavior. I’m really sorry.”

Addison was selected from Southern California with the 23rd overall pick in the NFL draft, following the cost-cutting move to release veteran wide receiver Adam Thielen.

Addison, winner of the 2021 Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top wide receiver in Pittsburgh, transferred to USC for his final college season. He had 59 receptions for 875 yards and eight touchdowns in 2022 for the Trojans. In two years with the Panthers, Addison had 2,259 receiving yards.

ESPN first reported Addison’s stated reason for the speeding.
