Browns left tackle Jedrick Wills and wide receiver Rashard Higgins were cited for drag racing in Cleveland last month and they settled the case on Tuesday.

An attorney for the two men said at the time that they would plead not guilty to the charges, which Wills said on Twitter was a case of police “blowing it way out of proportion.” Cleveland.com reports that the two players did wind up pleading guilty to different charges, however.

Speeding was the final charge and each player has been fined $250 to resolve the case.

Police also found a joint during the traffic stop and destroyed it without citing anyone for possession.

  1. You really think speeding and a single joint should send you to jail? Only people who have never been to jail would say something like that. It’s a horrible place and should only be reserved for those who need to be actually locked up. What they did was irresponsible but not criminal. Good on police for not charging them with possession and good on Wills and Higgins to settle it amicably and move on. Nothing to see here.

    What were they driving?

    A Grand Cherokee and a Durango. Not exactly hotrods, but still dangerous if driven recklessly.

  3. Baker Mayfield laughed when asked about the situation, “they didn’t even get tased”.

  4. Yeah, because you can always believe what a lawyer says. Since they accepted a deal to plead to lesser charges that probably means they were in fact drag racing and took the easy way out. Lucky for them they didn’t kill anyone.

    The Cherokee was a trackhawk with 700hp (a hellcat) and the durango was a 392 with 500hp. Most definitely hotrods. Chrysler is a little different than most car companies.

  6. It’s really “fun” until one of these guys loses control of his vehicle and hits another vehicle with other people and kills/injures them. The laughs would stop then. Other rich, entitled pro athletes have done this.

    Actually since in the state of Ohio there’s an offence called “FELONY SPEEDING” which is anything over 50MPH over the posted limit and carries an immediate licence suspension and up to 30 days in jail for the 1st offence, SO YEA, depending on how fast they were actually going they should do jail time just like any other citizen would!

    And we have no information on the details of the case. It’s possible they were, but it’s possible they didn’t exceed that limit. That’s the problem with trials by media, people create their own narratives to fit their personal beliefs when they lack the pertinent facts of a case.

  10. Browns – Forever cursed.
    Even when things seem like they are going their way.
    BOOM. Another reminder that they are still the Browns.
