    I didn't want to put this in the Arrest Thread, because he wasn't arrested...

    But anyway, pretty straightforward about what the title says. Antonio was pulled over this morning and cited for Reckless Driving after being clocked going over 100 Miles per hour in Pittsburgh.

    Just one day after Le'Veon Bell was spotted playing pick-up basketball in Pittsburgh after a 10-week hold. Man, this team just has ridiculousness oozing from every pore...

    Edit: Link to the story here.

    Coaches always say, if you're gonna make a mistake, make it at full speed

    I heard this was a public road rather than a highway? Is that true I can see people doing it on the highway often and funny enough the people I know who do are usually employed in law enforcement.

    Was gonna post this but thought it wasn't newsworthy.

    Its not a big deal, many of us have been caught speeding before.

    Like a six-laner commercial road with malls and restaurants and traffic lights every half-mile or so. Actually the same road Bell and Blount got stopped on for their weed bust a few years back.

    Hahahaha.

    I had a buddy back in high school who was so scared about getting pulled over for driving past midnight (illegal in California when you're under 18 and get your license), so his brilliant plan was to drive 120 down a 25.

    His parents paid the fees and everything. They did nothing but enable his dumbass lol.

    My highest rate of speed ticket I've gotten so far was 93 in a 75.

    Yeahhhh....lucky I'm not dead

    You wouldn't think a 1990 something Pontiac Bonneville could go that fast.....I'm pretty sure at one point both front wheels were off the ground

    I'm certain most of us have done things at 17 that probably could have killed us, or at least injured us badly.

    I got my Ford Taurus sedan up to about 115 downhill in a 55 when I was 19 (didn't get pulled over though). The difference is that we weren't 1) adults, 2) role models, or 3) MAJOR pieces of a professional sports team with millions of dollars of someone else's money riding on us...

    For someone under 21, it's easily dismissable as 'dumb kids being dumb kids', but it's a little less excusable for him, I think.

    Not that I'm wringing my hands over this, but it just kind of adds onto everything else that is going on with AB and this team in general.
