Earlier this month, Arizona Cardinals receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown was arrested for recklessly going 126 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone, which many thought was his first speeding offense. Details have now emerged that this is a part of a troubling string of events for the talented receiver.
According to TMZ, court documents revealed on Sunday show that Brown (seen above during camp earlier this month) also had a speeding ticket in June in Arizona. There, he was charged with going 21 mph over the speed limit while driving a white Mercedes.
Earlier this week, Brown relayed an apology for the August incident.
“I want to learn from it,” Brown said. “I’m not a guy who gets into trouble, so I want to put in my past and make sure I’m always doing the right things at all times.
“I have a lot of kids that look up to me, so I want to set the right example at all times,” Brown added.
He did happen to leave out the incident that occurred in June in his apology, which raises questions about the sincerity of his apology for his actions.
Two speeding cases in one offseason for Brown seems to be building a very disastrous trend. He’ll need to get his actions under control if he wants to remain in the good graces of both the law and the NFL moving forward.
He is due in court two separate times for both of these actions, and hopefully Brown can put this speeding trend behind him as the Cardinals get ready for the start of the NFL season.
