Charlie Davies reportedly fined, loses license for speeding

Charlie Davies, who nearly died in a car crash that cost him a spot on the United States World Cup team, has been fined and his driver's license has been suspended by French authorities after a speeding violation.

Davies, 24, and his Sochaux teammate, Jacques Faty, were clocked at 125 miles per hour early on Oct. 3 in France's Jura region. Faty and Davies told police that Faty was driving and that they switched positions because Faty thought his license was suspended from a previous speeding violation.

On Oct. 13, 2009, Davies was a passenger in a car crash on Washington's George Washington Parkway, in which he was severely injured and another passenger was killed. Davies had two broken bones in his right leg, a broken and dislocated left elbow, a broken nose, forehead and eye socket, a ruptured bladder and bleeding on the brain.

Wow, after nearly killing himself in a car crash on the GW Parkway and missing the World Cup as a result, you'd think he'd be way passed this kind of "life's a thrill ride" recklessness. Charlie: Stupid is what stupid does!
