Antonio Brown Found Guilty In Reckless Driving Case

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has reportedly been found guilty in his reckless driving case, stemming from an incident in November when cops say Brown’s Porsche was going over 100 MPH through a 45 MPH zone in Ross Township, Pennsylvania.

According to TMZ Sports, police were actually responding to a bank robbery on November 8 when they saw AB’s black Porsche speeding away from nearby the scene of the crime.

Brown did not appear in court today for the ruling. ESPN reports that the All-Pro receiver has been ordered to pay $426.77 in fines and other fees, which is merely chump change for a guy who signed a $68 million contract extension with the Steelers on February 27, 2017. 

He has 30 days to appeal the case if he so chooses.

This is the least of Brown’s legal troubles at the moment. Last month, the 30-year old Pro Bowler was accused of pushing the mother of his daughter to the ground after she refused to leave his property over reimbursement for the daughter’s hair appointment, according to a Hollywood police report (H/T ESPN). 

Additionally, Brown faced two lawsuits in October stemming from an April incident during which he allegedly threw items, including furniture, off an apartment balcony in Florida. Both cases are in the process of being resolved, according to ESPN.

Brown is also at the center of some football-related issues, as he has made it quite clear that he is unhappy with his role in Pittsburgh and is hoping for a trade to the San Francisco 49ers.
