Per WPXI NBC 11 in Pittsburgh, Brown received a citation for reckless driving from Ross Township police Thursday after being clocked going over 100 mph near the McCandless Crossing development.
According to WPXI, a police officer was in the area looking for a possible suspect in a bank robbery and noticed Brown was speeding in his Porsche. Aaron Martin of WPXI shared video of Brown speeding prior to the citation:
“We are aware of the situation, but we are still gathering information,” the Steelers said in a statement, via WPXI. “We wont have any further comment at this time.”
Brown was cited for going more than 100 miles per hour southbound on McKnight Road near McCandless Crossing, according to police. He was cited for reckless driving.
The officer was in the area looking for a possible bank robbery suspect when a black Porsche sped by, according to police. The officer pulled the driver over and found it to be Brown.
The area north of Pittsburgh is known as being the problem roadway in Ross Township and was the target of PennDOT funding for targeting speeding in 2015.
Brown made headlines approximately a month ago when a pair of lawsuits were filed against him in Florida. The first lawsuit alleges that Brown threw objects from a balcony that nearly hit a man and his 22-year-old grandson. A second lawsuit was filed by the units landlord, charging that the wide receiver damaged the unit and didnt pay for the damages.
The veteran started the season by being very vocal about the Steelers struggles. Theyre now on a four-game winning streak going into Thursday nights 8:20 p.m. match-up and have control of the AFC North with a 5-2-1 record. Carolina (6-2) is in a battle with the New Orleans Saints for the NFC South.
The Steelers released a statement saying they are still gathering information on the situation and wont have further comment at this time.
