When Dante Fowler was stopped by police for speeding July 15, he had a unique reason for why he couldn't show officers his registration documents.
According to TMZ, the Jacksonville Jaguars star told police he didn't have his registration on him because the car recently had been stolen and he just got it back the day before.
He said he had left the keys in it and someone took the car, but he got it back in time to pick up a speeding ticket.
Why it is not had taken? When the police asked him "why doesn't he have his registration documents" he could have answered "I left my keys in my car and someone took it" so reported speech should be had left and had taken but either someone took is not reported speech or it is to maintain the time relations between these sentences.
