Jennifer Lopez"s Beau Casper Smart Faces Charges for Illegal Drag Racing

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart
Although Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are said to be taking things slow with their new romance, her back-up dancer beau apparently likes to move fast – behind the wheel that is.

Smart, 24, whose real name is Beau Paul Smart, has racked up a number of speeding and traffic-related charges, including speeding greater than 100 miles per hour and illegal drag racing, according to police records. He was also charged with driving without a valid license in 2004, 2006 and 2007, evading electronic toll charges in 2005 and exceeding maximum speeds of 65 miles per hour in 2004 and 2005

The dancer has posted a $26,000 bail related to the charges, which are still pending. In March he pled no contest and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 5, 2012. But he must complete 10 days of community service before this court date.

If found guilty, he could spend 90 days in jail and have to pay another fine of $500.
