Justice pulled over, but as the police officer was getting out of his vehicle, Justice “drove off at a high rate of speed,” according to the suspension record.

Officers noted Justice’s car reached speeds of 112 mph before they stopped chasing him and filed an evading arrest report. Court records do not show any criminal charges filed against Justice.

Records showed Justice agreed to the suspension, meaning he will not be appealing the decision.
