Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown was arrested Wednesday morning on a speeding charge, the Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed to NFL.com.
Brown was arrested at 7:05 a.m. local time on Arizona State Route 101 in north Phoenix and booked into the Maricopa County Jail for speeding, a Class 3 misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail, a fine of up to $500 and/or up to one year of probation. Maricopa County inmate records say Brown was arrested for going over 85 mph.
“We are aware of the situation regarding Hollywood Brown and have reported it to the NFL office as required,” the Cardinals said in a statement. “We will comment further as appropriate.”
The 25-year-old wideout enters his first season in the desert after being traded by the Baltimore Ravens during the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Brown, who has not practiced during training camp while dealing with a hamstring injury, was activated from the non-football injury list on Tuesday. Brown was a spectator during Tuesday’s practice.
Brown should have a significant role in Arizona’s offense early in the season, with starter DeAndre Hopkins sitting out six games due to suspension. The receiver led all Baltimore wideouts with 91 catches, 1,008 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 2021. The Cardinals also use Rondale Moore and AJ Green at receiver.
