Deshaun Watson can’t be serious right now.
The controversial quarterback was busted for driving 30 mph over the speed limit in Ohio, months after he was traded to the Cleveland Browns, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Police video from the June 11 stop shows the quarterback in Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon when he was stopped by a trooper:
“TMZ Sports has learned he was busted for going 97 MPH in a 70 MPH zone in June.
“Like, 97?” said Watson, who also told the cop he had just been traded to the Browns.
“Yeah,” the officer responded, “I got you at 97.”
Watson said during the stop that he had been traveling into town from Detroit and the entire interaction with the cop was cordial. After a few minutes, the quarterback was issued a citation and allowed to leave.
According to TMZ Sports, the incident was settled on July 6 after Watson paid a $185 fine.
Watson appeared during the Browns’ preseason but is serving out an 11-game suspension after the NFL appealed the six-game suspension in August which was handed down by an independent disciplinary officer after more than two dozen women accused him of sexual misconduct during his time in Houston.
He was allowed to return to the Browns’ facility last week and will be able to return to practice on Nov. 14. His first eligible game will be Dec. 4 against his former team.
In the last week, another lawsuit was filed by a massage therapist against Deshaun Watson accusing him of sexual harassment.
