Pro athletes are under the watchful eye of the public. These people are placed in positions of influence as they inspire many who watch them perform. Sadly, not all of them can be the greatest role models. Marquise Brown might have a lot of ground to cover in that department.

Adam Schefter reports that the Arizona Cardinals’ wide receiver was arrested on criminal speeding charges. This arrest took place on Wednesday morning at around 7:05 AM. We do not know any further information on this still-developing story.

Cardinals’ WR Marquise Brown was arrested and charged with criminal speeding on Wednesday morning. Arizona Department of Safety spokesman Bart Graves confirmed that Brown was arrested at 7:05 a.m. in north Phoenix and booked in the Maricopa County Jail, per the AP.

This is not a good look at all, and Brown’s name is now added to a growing list of pro athletes who have experienced recent run-ins with the law. We will continue monitoring this ongoing story here at Thirsty.

Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
