Atlanta police officer Donald Hannah told The Atlanta Journal Constitution that Bembry was stopped in a 55-mph zone on Interstate 85 shortly after midnight. Bembry, who was driving a purple Dodge Charger, was charged with reckless driving and speeding, according to Hannah.
The Hawks released a statement Friday morning acknowledging an incident involving Bembry.
"We are still gathering information as it pertains to the situation, and out of respect for the legal process, we will have no further comment at this time," the team said.
Bembry, 23, has not played since Dec. 22 as he recovers from a groin injury. A first-round pick in 2016, Bembry is averaging 4.8 points and 2.3 rebounds per game this season.
