Arizona Cardinals Wide Receiver Marchioness “Hollywood” Brown was arrested and charged with speeding Wednesday morning.
Arizona Department of Security spokesman Bart Graves said Brown was arrested at 7:05 a.m. in northern Phoenix and taken to the Maricopa County Jail.
Brown was purchased from Baltimore Ravens in a draft day trade that sent the Cardinals’ first-round pick (23rd overall pick) to Baltimore in exchange for Brown and the 100th overall pick.
“We are aware of the situation with the Hollywood Browns and have reported this to the NFL office as required,” the Cardinals said in a statement. “We will comment further as needed.”
Arizona laws state that speeding in excess of 20 miles per hour is a felony. This is a misdemeanor.
With the Ravens last year, the fast wide receiver came out or Oklahoma spent a career year setting personal bests in catches (91) and receiving yards (1,008) while throwing six touchdowns, two short of his best eight touchdowns in 2020.
Brown was finally acquired in the next three-time All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins and wide receiver Rondale Moore to support receiving body Kyler Murray.
Cardinals acquired Brown knowing they would have to rely on him early in the season because Hopkins was suspended for the first six games of the year due to a failed PED test.
If Brown had missed the first week against Kansas City Chiefsthe newly enlarged Murray would be left without two main goals.
The Cardinals won 11-6 last year and finished second in the NFC West before losing Los Angeles Rams in the playoffs.
