What will David Stern do? R.O.Y. stupidity begs the question

The story and link are below, but my question is what exactly will be the NBA response to this non-sense?  Slap on the wrist with a minimal fine, nothing or something more substantial?  Kahn and the Wolves were recently fined $50K each for "well intentioned" violations of NBA policy.  This type of think strikes me as more harmful to the NBA in general as there is no way you can argue that Tyreke Evans was "well intentioned" here.  At a minimum it has to be a violation of a code of conduct.  Luckily no one was hurt, but if I was a Kings fan I'd be kinda pissed at the amazing stupidity involved here.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The basketball court isn't the only place where Sacramento Kings player Tyreke Evans apparently likes to move fast.

A video released by the California Highway Patrol shows Evans speeding past vehicles on Interstate 80 in his purple Mercedes. CHP officers say he was driving 120 to 130 miles per hour.

The video of the 20-year-old NBA Rookie of the Year was shot from a plane on Memorial Day weekend.

After being stopped by police, Evans was arrested at gunpoint.

Authorities say the video offers evidence that Evans may have been racing another vehicle.

Attorneys say he pleaded no contest to reckless driving, was sentenced to 80 hours of community service, ordered to take part in teen driving programs and lost his license for 30 days.
