Apparently, Antonio Brown likes to spend time gaining speed, literally. The extensive Steelers receiver was stopped to drive more than 100 miles all hours in an area 45 miles per second according to KDKA, an affiliate of CBS Sports Pittsburgh.
Strangely, it seems that Brown was stopped because there was a bank robbery in the area. And according to KDKA, "the agents were responding to a bank robbery at McCandless Crossing when they spotted a car that traveled at a high rate of speed and pulled it back".
The vehicle in question was Brown's black Porsche (see here). Brown was arrested Thursday about 10 o'clock.
Of course, Brown is not a suspect in the bank robbery, he just realized he was dragging himself through an area of 45 miles all the time at insane speeds when the agents were responding.
Brown was on McKnight Road as he drove and was stopped "between Babcock Boulevard and Parkway" for KDKA.
"We are aware of the situation, but we are still collecting information, we will not have any further comments at this time," Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten said in a statement.
The Steelers are certainly not happy with the situation, as they will host the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night for a huge game of Week 10.
Pittsburgh has played really well in recent weeks and Brown has done the same – in the last three games where the Steelers managed to sweep the AFC North, the All-Pro wide receiver managed to rotate in four touchdown jacks, as well as 221 yards on 16 catches.
I am alreadyis and sign your offer.
It probably will not affect Steelers' gameplan at all, but do not be surprised if you see Mike Tomlin sound very annoyed or perhaps leave Brown on the sidelines for the first game series after this incident.
