Morgan charged with multiple driving infractions

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans' top draft pick, Derrick Morgan, faces charges of driving with a suspended license and speeding after an interstate traffic stop in northwest Georgia.

Gordon County, Ga., Sheriff Mitch Ralston said in a statement Friday a speed detection device showed Morgan was traveling 91 mph in a 70 mph zone when stopped Wednesday on I-75 in Resaca. The statement said Morgan was also charged with driving with a suspended license. He was jailed and released on a $2,108 bond.

The statement said Morgan was cooperative.

Morgan, a defensive end, is from Atlanta and played for Georgia Tech. He has a July 26 court date.

A Titans representative who declined to identify himself said the team is aware of the traffic stop.

Morgan's agent, Ben Dogra, did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
