I suspect many people would be wondering what auto Brown was in when he reportedly was cited Thursday morning for driving in excessive of 100 miles per hour.

The insane part of this story is that authorities pulled Brown over for reckless driving at the same time that they were hunting for a bank robber nearby.

Antonio Brown apparently likes to spend gameday getting up to speed, literally.

The officer pulled the vehicle over and the driver was identified as Brown.

Per the report, Brown was initially pursued because the officer was looking for a fleeing suspect from a bank robbery.

The incident took place hours before the Steelers were scheduled to face the Carolina Panthers in a Thursday night game. He was cited for reckless driving.

According to WPXI-TV, the Steelers released a statement that said, "We are aware of the situation, but we are still gathering information". Running back Le'Veon Bell was pulled over for suspicion of DUI on that very same stretch of road four years ago, and was later charged with marijuana possession.
