PALM BEACH GARDENS — Serena Williams‘ speed demon fiance Alexis Ohanian is certainly marrying into a family that knows plenty about traffic troubles!
Which is good, because he’s got some of his own.
Reddit co-founder Ohanian was driving his new red Tesla last week, and was pulled over by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper after he was clocked going 79 mph on I-95, south of Jupiter.
That’s no way for a new father to drive!
Ohanian is the new father of Williams’ two-month-old daughter, Alexis Ohanian, Jr, but it’s unclear if mama or baby were in the car with him as he sped along, nearly 10 mph over the speed limit.
Apparently, Ohanian’s speed tripped off a trooper’s radar in the 70 mph zone.
According to court records, Ohanian wasted no time trying to distance himself from the offense. He pleaded no contest on Monday, paid his fine and signed up to attend a driver’s ed class.
His soon-to-be sister-in-law Venus Williams is facing a ton of traffic trouble after she was involved in a July car crash that left an 78-year-old man dead.
Luckily for Ohanian, his troubles aren’t nearly so big.
If he successfully completes his course, he won’t even have points assessed on his license.
This is his first traffic ticket in Palm Beach County, but he’s only been living here for two months.
