The Ohio State Highway Patrol has issued a citation to Browns defensive end Myles Garrett as a result of the car crash that sent him to the hospital on Monday.

According to multiple reports, has been cited for failure to control his vehicle. The citation goes on to note that “unsafe speed for the type of roadway being traveled appeared to be a contributing circumstance” to the crash, which saw Garrett’s Porsche flip over before coming to a stop.

Before the citation was announced, it was noted that Garrett has received six other speeding tickets in the Cleveland area since 2017.

Garrett suffered injuries to his shoulder and biceps in addition to lacerations in the crash and he did not practice on Wednesday. The Browns said that they expect him back for Thursday’s workout.

  1. The guy could have murdered someone on the field and is still allowed to play in the league. Do you think that type of enabling makes him care about continuous traffic violations?

  2. Hopefully surviving what could have been a horrific accident, and especially not killing his passenger, makes him wake up and get his priorities straight,

  3. Why do people with money never get any consequences for their actions?? Unreal really 2 sets of rules. No way he shouldn’t be in jail right now.

  4. SIX TICKETS??!!!

    I bet that animal in the road story was a lie too, he does have a history of lying.

    I got a ticket in my early twenties and it completely changed the way I drive on the road. He needs to be held accountable before he kills somebody.

  5. Ok now for fun let’s see what the fine is for non-Cleveland Browns players for doing over 100 mph in a 70. Bet it’s more than some small fines.

  6. would be hilarious if they took his license (which someone should probably have done a while ago) and he had to drive a vespa scooter. big guy on tiny scooter..lmao

  7. Got a feeling that Garrett would drive like an idiot in a VW bus. He just happens to be able to afford a race car.
    We all think we can’t die when we’re young. Hopefully he lives to mature out of it.

  8. Only a matter of time before he kills someone. And then all we will hear is “prayers”
    This can be avoided NOW. Make him serve time just like any regular citizen would serve that isn’t an NFL player

  9. Some prospective folks. He was going 65 in a 45. Anyone acting on here like they’ve never been guilty of that before, I have bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. Mr. Garrett is lucky to be alive and this incident will most certainly change his entire prospective on how he drives in the future.

    65 in a 45. Fast but not insane
    ———————————
    Last year he was ticket for driving 120 mph and the very next day received another ticket for driving 105 mph. I don’t know where you got 65 in a 45. Nobody outside of Myles and the cars computer know how fast he was going. It was fast enough to cause the vehicle to flip.

    Goodell will do nothing

    That’s for law enforcement to decide. Nobody’s boss fires or suspends them for speeding unless they drive for a living. Which he does not.

  12. They should treat speeding like DUI’s…you get caught 2 or 3 times doing it, and there goes your license to drive.

    He needs to be driving a 1975 Vega…
    ___________________________________

    1975 Ford Pinto might be even better.

  14. And he has the nerve to get on his soapbox about a lineman trying to do his job? Which sin is more egregious here?

    Nor should he. This is not NFL related other he is a Player.

  16. We need the XFL where you can wear your nickname on the back of your jersey. Garrett can wear “Time Bomb”. It’s only a matter of time before this guy explodes and kills somebody.

  17. Always interesting to see how the privileged class within the NFL gets treated.

    Garrett has been enabled around his unsafe driving for years. Aaron Donald gets a free pass for dangerous violence. DeShaun Watson gets a slap on the wrist for committing dozens of acts that, individually, would earn a multi-game suspension and, collectively, would get anyone else canceled.

    It’s common (and justified) sport to depict the billionaire owners in a bad light. We’re seeing the development of an ugly sense of entitlement and being above the law and morality among star players, and the more it gets enabled, the worse it’s going to get.

  18. He’s too young to remember the tragedy of Jerome Brown.
    Hopefully he doesn’t suffer a similar fate and take innocent lives with him like Brown did.

    Ask Henry Ruggs III how this behavior will end and try to learn from that before someone dies.
    ———————————-
    Ruggs was drunk. Garrett shouldn’t speed, but let’s not be ridiculous.

  20. So a slap on the wrist is all after several tickets and a crash….ya those tickets will really curb his carelessness. He needs to hire a driver or walk…he has the money ….but apparently not the brains.

  21. Again, Ohio law enforcement goes soft on him. “Failure to control” is the charge you should get for things like spinning out on wet/icy roads or overcorrecting for an animal in the road. $150 fine, two points on your license. Garrett’s a serial reckless driver (the terminology in Ohio is “reckless operator”) whose license should’ve been revoked already. Given that he’s managed to injure himself and a passenger, this should involve a brief jail sentence, but it will be a chump-change fine, again.

  22. Amazing how guys will buy high performance vehicles and will push them way beyond their skills as a driver.

  23. I have driven fast before; but, going that fast in half ton murder machine should carry something more than a fine for multiple offenses.

  24. Best thing that happened to him is that he got hurt, and he’s very lucky he was hurt much worse than he was. Hopefully this scares him enough to be more responsible.

  25. Has a history of tickets. What are the odds he has been pulled over many times by some fanboy cop and not gotten a ticket based on his being a Browns player? Nah, that would never happen…

    This is the danger of digging into Garret’s traffic record. It’s painting a picture that he is a criminal. Traffic citations aren’t crimes.

    Ruggs is a criminial.

    What 2 sets of rules exactly. Anyone who flipped their car speeding and didn’t hurt anyone else would not go to jail.

  28. These cars that the players are driving are meant for experienced drivers only! They should be treated like a gun in the wrong hands. Special permits maybe?

  29. I’m not buying Garrett’s statement that he was doing 65mph…. The laws of physics, inertia, and momentum indicate he was probably going much faster…. I’m thinking 90-100 to have gone airborn and roll the car TIMES.
    I believe he’s lying.
