Allred was cited for driving 102 miles per hour in a 65 zone in Orange County, said Sgt. J.E. Brewer, a spokesman for the Highway Patrol. On Monday night, Allred was stopped as he was driving to the legislative session from Burlington.
Allred said Thursday in an interview that he told the trooper he was on his way to the legislature to vote. The trooper asked to see identification beyond a drivers license and Allred said he produced his legislative ID. The trooper, N.A. Mitchell, let Allred go with a warning.
News of the stop became public Thursday when House leaders revealed they were inquiring into other events that night. Various people reported that Allred was intoxicated and improperly hugged a teenaged page. Allred denied any impropriety.
Patrol officials consulted with the Orange County District Attorney on Friday and were told to issue a citation for the Monday night speeding incident, Brewer said. The trooper who stopped Allred had him on radar, Brewer said.
It is unclear why the trooper did not cite Allred for speeding Monday night.
"We're looking into that right now," Brewer said.
