Myles Garrett has been ticketed multiple times for driving over 100 mph

Police have not said whether speeding was involved when Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was in a single-car accident this week. But Garrett reportedly has a history of unsafe driving.

Although police are still investigating the cause of this week’s crash, in which Garrett flipped his Porsche, WKYC reports that Garrett has at least six speeding tickets in the Cleveland area since 2017.

On September 24 of last year, Garrett was stopped for driving 120 mph. The very next day, he was ticketed again, this time for driving 105 mph. Both of those infractions happened on Interstate 71 in suburban Cleveland, where the speed limit is 70 mph.

Garrett’s repeated speeding offenses have resulted in nothing more than small fines which are unlikely to deter someone on a five-year, $125 million contract. Perhaps this week’s incident, in which he suffered shoulder and biceps injuries, will be enough to persuade him to drive safely.

  1. I got 4 speeding tickets in my twenties…in a Pontiac. Can’t imagine if I owned a Porsche turbo.

  2. I guess Ruggs throwing away his career and killing an innocent woman means nothing to this guy. Sad.

  3. The accident is karma. He wasnt injured but the universe is telling the browns how disgusted they are over the watson signing

    The cubs curse is nothing compared to what the browns face.

    Athlete privilege. Anyone else has their license suspended/revoked.
    ___________

    Simply not true. Anyone with an attorney can get any speeding violation reduced to defective equipment or some other non-moving violation.

  5. Stopped two days in a row for going over 100 mph?? Please get this guy off the streets before we have another Henry Ruggs situation. SMH.

  6. When you have the money and the fame, you only get a slapped in the hand, they give you a ticket and tell you to drive safely. But if you’re not ????. You will get arrested for reckless driving and go to jail. Your licensed will be suspended, might be revoked because it’s a continuous offense, you will pay a big fine and must complete drivers training 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤷🤷🤷🤷.

  7. In Finland, fines for speeding are a percentage of a person’s daily income rather than a set fee. Fine starts at 50% of the driver’s daily income and rises depending on the speed. Not sure how much Mr. Garrett earns in a day, but 50% of that amount is likely not an insignificant sum.

  8. Live fast, die young, and leave a swole corse, huh? Hopefully that’s the last time.

  9. Garret’s act is getting old on and off the field. On the field and in the locker room, he’s increasingly exposed his poor leadership…which obviously shouldn’t come as a surprise, given the whole helmet attack thing. But he’s really good at saying some of the right things at the right times…..as long as he thinks he’s not possibly one of the people in the wrong, he will happily speak out. Got a problem with something he’s done? Better not say it. And surely, don’t boo!

  10. I was in an a life-altering accident (I was actually under the speed limit), and I can’t stand when people take other people’s lives in their hand with their car. It’s not much different then playing with a loaded gun, except that you put more lives at risk with your car. I hope Miles is OK, but I also hope this accident sticks with him just enough that he drives responsibly.

  11. It’s now safe to say that this guy is another NFL ticking time bomb. Only a matter of time before his actions have catastrophic results.

  12. Anyone reading this would actually be in jail for that many tickets at that high of speed.
    These athletes talk about protecting the community yet go out and continuously put the community in danger by driving like that. If he was ticketed 6 times that means he was probably stopped 12 times which means he probably drives like that ALL the time.

  13. Ohio doesn’t have some kind of points system where you lose your license for multiple moving violations? I though that all states did.

  14. I’m pretty sure the speed limit on 71 in suburban Cleveland is not 70. It’s 60 just about everywhere in suburban Cleveland and 65 in a few places. I don’t drive on 71 that often, so I could be wrong, but that doesn’t sound right.

  15. 120 in a 70 mph speed zone is reckless driving, jail time and loss of license. 6 speed tickets with small fines and still driving? Someone in Cleveland is getting paid off.

  16. No one has ever said that Myles is going to get a PhD in any discipline. He obviously learns his lessons the hard way.

  17. It does not really matter if the cops declare it or not: if you flip over multiple times in a car, and you didn’t drive off a steep hill/cliff or something, speed was probably a factor.

    He should be less worried about a fine from a traffic citation and more worried about a lawsuit from his injured passenger.

  18. Reports suggest Garrett swerved to avoid an animal… I call bull, he was probably doing 100+ on a sideroad and lost control of his vehicle. I drive by the stadium in Cleveland on my way to and from work almost every day, I see those players racing on i90 or 77 several times a week at 100+ swerving in and out of traffic like it’s Daytona. It’s a miracle no one has been killed yet.

  19. Take his freaken license and car away from him before he kills a innocent child or adult. He had enough money for a limo and driver or Uber.

  20. Give him 30 days in jail ….he’ll slow down. He is a great talent but that talent is from the shoulders down….seems a bit immature.

  21. not surprised. people don’t buy expensive sports cars to drive the speed limit. hopefully he has learned.

    my guess he was not driving 100 mph on that country road but even 70 could be dangerous on wet, rural roads.

  22. Under the Ohio point system, it’s pretty hard to get your license suspended just for speeding. You would need at least 3 incidents going 30 over the limit in a 2 year period. Even then it’s a 6-month suspension and a $40 reinstatement fee.

  23. Since he’s rich and famous I guess they’ll wait til he actually hurts or kills someone before doing anything. Where I live, 120 mph is going to get you reckless driving and probably a night in the clink.

    You’re not wrong. I live in Medina County and it’s 70 out there… but once you get into Cuyahoga, it’s 65. Myles DOES live in Medina County though, so… maybe he was pulled over out there?

  25. This clown has a penchant for putting others’ lives at risk. Assault with a helmet and rampant reckless driving. 100 mph in traffic is as risky as it gets to others

    This is generally true, but not everyone could afford to pay a lawyer for those services.

    As someone mentioned already, any law where the penalty for a violation is a fine only is a law that does not apply to wealthy people.

  27. Driving at 100 miles an hour gets people killed if you get into an accident.

    You may cause someone else to react and they die and not you but it’s still your fault.

    He should get a warning from the NFL since he doesn’t seem to care.

  28. He (and others on the road) are very lucky and he is getting another chance to wake upu and realize how dangerous and stupid this is. He can afford to take his sports car to a track. 2 days in a row over over 100 mph? When I get a ticket for going 10 over I drive like a grandma for the next six months!

  29. Simply not true. Anyone with an attorney can get any speeding violation reduced to defective equipment or some other non-moving violation.

    LOL, sure. Driving over 100mph gets most people arrested the first time, not to mention 2 days in a row. Garrett has yet to go to jail now for 3 incidents. If thats not privilege, i don’t know what is.

    No, they would not because anyone with any sense would have had the previous tickets reduced to non-moving violations. It is one of the cheapest things that attorneys will handle, and any attorney can get any speeding ticket reduced. Once that happens the speeding violation no longer exists and does not factor into the next case.

  31. Just speculation, but how many times has he been pulled over and not received a ticket? Officer gives him a “Have a good day, Mr. Garrett. And beat those Ravens this week!”

    I actually live about 90 seconds from where Myles lives and from where the accident happened (he was almost home when he wrecked.) There’s almost no way to get to 100mph on the road he was driving on and, if he had, he’d be dead right now. That road slants towards the ditch on either side and is a rural, lumpy road. 65 sounds about right, but you can only be doing that speed if it’s dry. The fact that it was wet (it had rained a short time before) means that hitting 100mph would have been basically impossible.

  33. People here want to act like only “rich & privileged athletes” drive fast & reckless.
    It’s not the money. It’s the youth and the feeling of invulnerability. I used to drive like an idiot when I was young and I certainly didn’t have money or an expensive race car.
    I cringe now when I think of stupid & lucky I was.

    No one gets taken to jail for driving 100+. Even if they did, there is no way in a large city that the officer on the second day would know about the violation the day before.

    Large cities also have multiple traffic courts that are in session daily. Once again, the likelihood that the second violation court would know of the first is low. A sharp attorney can also get the cases scheduled for the same day in different courts.

    The bottom line is that anyone with a little cunning can avoid jail time for multiple 100+ speeding tickets, relatively inexpensively. Privilege has nothing to do with it.

    Most attorneys will handle speeding tickets for less than $500, some for much less. That amount is worth it simply to avoid the rise in insurance rates resulting from a speeding conviction.

  36. Well, good thing he’s appointed himself safety ambassador on the football field, then. He’s clearly a responsible man who cares deeply about the welfare of others.

    Or, and this is a radical idea, you could just slow down…

  38. Got a sports car, people don’t want you to drive it. Speeding is not a big deal, you have been brainwashed by the police to think it is.

    And comparing him to Ruggs? Please. He wasn’t on the highway and he was hammered it’s not even remotely the same situation.

  39. People act like they don’t speed by time I was 27 I had already gotten 37 speeding tickets from Ohio down to SC in every state. Speeding isn’t dangerous its the people that go under the speed limit causes accidents.

    The speeds in Cleveland are outdated mostly 50 to 65 mph everytime I go-to the VA up there os a nightmare with how they drive there so slow

    So much for the concept of learning from experience.

  42. Conduct unbecoming to the League NFL, You might want to do something before he kills someone.

  43. Ohio State Highway Patrol cited Garrett for the accident saying he was traveling 65 mph in a 45 mph zone. Hopefully this accident wakes the young man up and he realizes how lucky he got before he gets into one he cant walk away from.
