Hollywood Brown is entering his first season with the Cardinals and will be looked upon to make some big plays to start the season since star WR Deandre Hopkins is suspended for the first six games.
Hollywood isn’t off to a good start in Arizona, though.
He was arrested early Wednesday morning after he was caught speeding. Going 101, to be exact, and it seems worse than that, though, since he was charged with criminal speeding and was put in jail.
What exactly is criminal speeding? It is going faster than 85 mph, exceeding the posted speed limit by 20 mph, and/or exceeding 35 mph approaching a school zone. Hollywood obviously broke one of those.
Because of that, he was booked and charged with the class 3 misdemeanor, which means he can face up to 30 days in jail, a $500 fine, and/or up to a year of probation.
I wonder if he was late for practice?
Here is exactly how fast he was going.
Arizona Cardinals receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown was arrested Wednesday morning on criminal speeding charges, the Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed to KTAR News 92.3 FM and Arizona Sports.
Brown was arrested at 7:05 a.m. heading southbound on Loop 101 driving in an HOV lane, according to DPS spokesman Bart Graves. Arizona Sports’ John Gambadoro confirmed that Brown registered at a speed of 126 miles per hour.
Brown was not present with the team during the portion of Wednesday morning’s practice that was in sight of reporters but has been working back from a hamstring injury slowly since the start of training camp last week.
“We are aware of the situation regarding Hollywood Brown and have reported it to the NFL office as required. We will comment further as appropriate,” the Cardinals said in a statement.
Let’s hope this is the only mishap he has this season.
One would think after what happened with Henry Ruggs, NFL players would be more mindful of their speed on the highway.
