Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown cited after driving 100 miles per hour

Steelers’ WR Antonio Brown Cited For Going 100-Plus MPH On McKnight Road

On Thursday morning, the Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro WR was pulled over and cited for reckless driving.

The Steelers have not yet commented on Brown's citation, KDKA reports.

The officer was in the area looking for a possible bank robbery suspect when a black Porsche sped by, according to police.

Officers were responding to a bank robbery at McCandless Crossing when they spotted a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed and pulled it over.

Brown was on McKnight Road when he was driving and he was pulled over "between Babcock Boulevard and the Parkway" per KDKA. It remains to be seen if Steelers HC Mike Tomlin or any members of the Steelers' brass disciplines Brown before the game.

The Panthers have won three games in a row while Pittsburgh has put together four straight wins to take control of the AFC North.

The Steelers issued a statement saying, "We are aware of the situation, but we are still gathering information". They also talked about Le'Veon Bell getting busted for smoking weed a few years back.
