Report: Antonio Brown cited for driving 100 mph on McKnight Road

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was cited by Ross Township police for driving in excess of 100 miles per hour while traveling southbound on McKnight Road near McCandless Crossing, WPXI reported Thursday morning.

Brown was charged with reckless driving.

“We are aware of the situation, but we are still gathering information. We won’t have any further comment at this time,” Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten said.

The Steelers are scheduled to play the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night at Heinz Field. 

The incident comes a month after it was reported that Brown is facing a pair of lawsuits in Miami. The suits allege that Brown threw furniture from a 14th floor balcony of a housing unit that nearly struck two people on the ground, including a todder. The building’s landlord also filed suit against Brown for damages to the furniture and apartment estimated at $100,000.

Brown released a statement in October maintaining his innocence and calling the claims “false.”

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
