Dwight Howard had car towed by police morning before Hawks eliminated from playoffs

DUNWOODY, Ga. -- On the same day the Atlanta Hawks were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs, center Dwight Howard had his vehicle towed for not having insurance on April 28, according to a police report.

Howard was pulled over for speeding on I-285 westbound at Ashford-Dunwoody road, the report states. Officer E. Taffar stopped Howard's blue 2016 Audi at 2:06 a.m.

Howard did not have insurance, so the vehicle was towed, according to the report.

He was cited for driving without insurance, a misdemeanor. There is no information in the report regarding why Howard was out early Friday morning.

Later that day, the Hawks were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs, losing the series with the Washington Wizards 4-2. Howard scored nine points and had seven rebounds during game 6. Howard was benched for much of that game.

Howard is an Atlanta, Georgia native. He signed a three-year, $70.5 million contract with the Hawks during the 2016 offseason. He averaged 13.5 points per game and 12.7 rebounds per game during the regular season.
