Lost in the lingering delay regarding Brown receiver Josh Gordon’s appeal is the fact that Gordon faces DUI charges in North Carolina.
Per the Associated Press, a hearing scheduled for Tuesday has been continued until November.
The DUI has no bearing on Gordon’s pending suspension for violating the substance-abuse policy. However, his history of substance-abuse violations could prompt the NFL to suspend him for a first-offense DUI, even though the standard penalty is a two-game fine.
If Gordon ultimately beats the DUI charge, there will be no discipline of any kind. For this situation.
