Rashard Higgins isn’t exactly known as a speed demon on the field for the Cleveland Browns, but he was cited for going too fast off the field on Tuesday morning.
Higgins was given a citation for drag racing on Tuesday, per Scott Petrak of BrownsZone.com, yet another distraction for Cleveland leading up to its first playoff game in 17 years.
The Browns starting pass-catcher was cited with another car and a “substance suspected as a marijuana joint” was found and destroyed under officer supervision, per Petrak. It’s uncertain which car the substance belonged to.
The team said they were aware of the incident and were gather more information to deal with it appropriately.
Higgins almost immediately responded to the report once it started to make the rounds, but both tweets referencing the incident are now deleted.
