Marquise Brown returned to Arizona Cardinals training camp on Thursday following his arrest in which he was charged with criminal speeding. Brown was arrested on Wednesday morning in Arizona and his head coach is not happy about it.
Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury didn’t hide his disappointment when asked about Brown’s off-field incident, via Paul Calvisi of Arizona Sports.
“He knows he needs to be better than that.”
Police reports state Brown was arrested at around 7:05 AM in north Phoenix. Jail records show he was booked on a charge of exceeding 85 MPH in a 65 MPH zone while multiple media outlets said he was actually traveling at 126 MPH.
Arizona’s state laws say that driving over 85 mph is grounds for a criminal speeding charge, and Brown was going more than 40 mph faster than that. Brown, who is entering his fourth NFL season and first with the Cardinals, could face up to 30 days in jail, a fine of up to $500, and/or one-year probation.
Brown was acquired by the Cardinals during the 2022 NFL Draft. The Cardinals sent the No. 23 overall pick to the Ravens in exchange for Brown and the 100th overall selection.
He has become a huge part of the team as Deandre Hopkins is suspended for six games due to PED use.
