PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown appeared in court Wednesday and pleaded guilty in connection with his hasty arrest last year. Brown’s attorneys previously said they would proceed with a court hearing, so the guilty plea was unexpected, officials said. He faces up to 30 days in prison, a year’s probation and a $500 fine. Brown is expected to be sentenced March 15.
On August 3, Brown was pulled over after an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer saw him speeding on Loop 101 near Interstate 17. He was reportedly going 126 mph, nearly double the 65 freeway top speed. He was reported for criminal speeding but later released.
The Cardinals also faced other legal problems this season. Running backs coach James Saxon has been placed on leave after being charged with two home battery charges just days after Brown’s arrest. Saxon reportedly assaulted a woman in front of two children last May.
Brown was among the many Cardinals players hit by injuries this season. A foot injury sidelined him a month this season, but he still appeared in 12 games for the Red Birds. He finished with just over 700 yards and three touchdowns.
