Sacramento Kings point guard Tyreke Evans(notes) is apologizing with a tweet after being cited on suspicion of reckless driving in California.

In a Twitter message on Tuesday to his fans, family and the Kings, Evans says he is sorry for “bad decision making” and has learned his lesson.

Evans was cited and released by the California Highway Patrol on Monday.

The air unit spotted the NBA’s Rookie of the Year driving a 2010 black Mercedes S550 at more than 100 mph on Interstate 80. The CHP says officers will review air patrol video to see if more charges will be filed.

CHP spokeswoman Lizz Dutton says Evans was cooperative and wasn’t driving impaired. He’s due in court in August.
