Steelers’ Brown convicted of summary reckless driving count
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was convicted of a summary count of reckless driving after failure to appear for a hearing.
Police said Brown was pulled over after traveling over 100 mph in a 45-mph zone in November in Ross Township, hours before the team’s game against the Carolina Panthers. He earlier paid a $426.77 fine.
Brown was represented in Tuesday’s proceeding in Allegheny County Magisterial District Court by attorney James Hankle, who declined to say where his client was or otherwise comment. The summary reckless driving conviction carries a $200 fine.
Brown, the only player in NFL history with six consecutive seasons of at least 100 receptions, has three years remaining on his current contract but has indicated on social media that he’d prefer to play elsewhere.
