The answer is Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was driving a Porsche.

I suspect many people would be wondering what car Brown was in when he reportedly was cited Thursday morning for driving in excessive of 100 mph. According to KDKA-TV, Brown was in an area where the posted speed limit is 45 mph.

KDKA reported that police officers were responding to a bank robbery when they saw Brown’s car ”traveling at a high rate of speed and pulled it over.” Brown obviously wasn’t involved in the robbery, but he was cited for reckless driving in excess of 100 mph, the station reported.

Brown could be fined $200 and lose his license for six months if convicted, KDKA reported.

According to WPXI-TV, the Steelers released a statement that said, “We are aware of the situation, but we are still gathering information. We won’t have any further comment at this time.”

The Steelers play the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night.
