PHOENIX - Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown was arrested for criminal speeding on the morning of Aug. 3.
Arizona Department of Safety spokesman Bart Graves confirmed that Brown was arrested at 7:05 a.m. along the Loop 101 near Interstate 17 in north Phoenix and booked in Maricopa County Jail.
According to court documents, Brown was clocked by a trooper going 126 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone.
In Arizona, criminal speeding is defined as anything 20 mph over the posted speed limit. It is a misdemeanor.
"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."
Brown's lawyer appeared on the NFL star's behalf on Aug. 23. A second hearing is scheduled for Sept. 14.

Brown was acquired in a draft-day deal with the Baltimore Ravens and is expected to play a big role in Arizona’s offense, especially during the first six weeks when three-time All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins is out because of a suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancers.
Brown caught 91 passes for 1,007 yards and six touchdowns for the Ravens last season. The receiver didn't practice much during training camp because of a hamstring injury he suffered while working out on his own in July.
In his first game with the Cardinals, Brown caught four passes for 43 yards and a touchdown in a 44-21 loss at home against the Kansas City Chiefs.
