The Pittsburgh Steelers got news they didn’t need to hear prior to their Thursday Night Football matchup against the Carolina Panthers. Wide receiver Antonio Brown was cited for reckless driving after apparently ?driving over 100 MPH past a Ross Township police officer at 10 a.m. on Thursday morning. He was caught red-handed, as video emerged of Brown’s black Porsche being chased by police on McKnight Road, courtesy of WPXI in Pittsburgh.

This is not the first time Brown has been in trouble off the field. Just last month, it was reported he is being sued for throwing furniture off his Miami apa?rtment balcony, nearly hitting a child.
The Steelers are aware of the situation, and have yet to release a statement, even after this latest video footage of their star receiver. He’s expected to play on Thursday night against the Panthers, but a hefty fine could be coming soon for Brown.
