Former Whitney Young High School star Jahlil Okafor is in trouble off the court again.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the 76ers big man was stopped by police on the Ben Franklin Bridge near Philadelphia for driving 108 mph.

Any speed over 40 mph on the bridge is considered reckless driving, according to the report. The incident occurred three weeks ago, the report said.

On Friday, a man filed a police report accusing the former Duke center ofassaulting him during a fight in Boston following an 84-80 loss against the Celtics, a report in the New York Daily News said.

Last month, Okafor had a gun pointed at him after a verbal exchange at a Philadelphia night club, according to a previous Sun-Times report.
