PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland Trail Blazers forward apologized Sunday after police ticketed him for driving 107 mph.

An officer working traffic patrol on Interstate 5 southbound stopped Blazers newcomer Thomas Robinson in his 2013 Porsche Panamera at 11:12 a.m. Friday.

Robinson was in a 55 mph zone.

Police described him as polite and cooperative during the traffic stop.

Robinson and the Blazers open the NBA regular season this week. He posted a message to Twitter, saying "Apologies for that speeding ticket rip city gotta be more careful with watching the speed limit my first and last one tho for sure."
