Antonio Brown may not be the fastest player in football, but he’s pretty darn fast when he takes the wheel.
On Thursday morning, the Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro WR was pulled over and cited for reckless driving.
Per a report from WPXI, Brown was clocked going over 100 miles per hour on McKnight Road in Ross, PA.
Below is a clip of Brown’s black Porsche being pursued by a police car.

Per the report, Brown was initially pursued because the officer was looking for a fleeing suspect from a bank robbery.
Ross township commissioner Steve Korbel later tweeted to the Steelers requesting they avoid speeding and weed.
Dear @steelers, Please remind your players that when traveling on McKnight Road in @TownshipOfRoss they should leave the weed at home and avoid speeds in excess of 100 MPH. cc: @CoachTomlin @AB84 @LeVeonBell #HereweGo #BeatCarolina

The weed comment was a reference to Le’Veon Bell’s 2014 marijuana arrest.
The Steelers host the Carolina Panthers tonight on Thursday Night Football. It remains to be seen if Steelers HC Mike Tomlin or any members of the Steelers’ brass disciplines Brown before the game.
Brown leads the Steelers in receiving TDs with nine. He accounts for more than half of QB Ben Roethlisberger’s TD passes this season.
