Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown is widely regarded as having top-notch character, and has no history of off-the-field problems dating back to his time at Auburn. Therefore, his March arrest for driving under the influence caught everyone by surprise.
According to the Miami Herald, Brown’s trial was continued until September 2 during a Thursday morning court appearance. September 2 is the same date as the Dolphins’ preseason finale. Though starters don’t typically play in the fourth exhibition game, Brown’s attorney reportedly may pursue a jury trial — and another continuance — should no resolution be reached with prosecutors in the meantime.
“He’s not going to have to miss a single day of practice or a single game,” promised Brown’s lawyer, Michael LaScala.
