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.
