For Al Jefferson, February 28th was a date he’d rather not remember, but eventually he will have to face all the events that happened to him on that specific date. Why is that? Well you see Al was pulled over due to speeding (56 mph in a 40 mph zone) on February 28th at 1:08 a.m by the State Patrol. They requested a blood and field sobriety test. He was taken into arrest in the Hennepin County Jail and released at 3:19 a.m , but will have to present to court on April 23rd to deal with his fourth degree driving while impaired charge.
