Deshaun Watson caught driving nearly 30 mph over speed limit, months after trade to Browns

Deshaun Watson was issued a citation for driving nearly 30 mph over the speed limit in Ohio, just months after being traded to the Cleveland Browns, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. 

Video from June 11 shows the quarterback in a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon with at least two other passengers in the vehicle when he was stopped by a trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol for speeding.

“The reason for the stop is going to be your speed. Do you have any idea how fast you were going?” the officer can be heard saying.

Watson replied with 97 mph, which the officer confirmed. 

“Yeah, I got you at 97.” 

The officer informed Watson, who revealed that he had been recently traded to the Browns, that going 27 mph over the speed limit was “a little fast for a warning” and issued him a speeding citation.

According to TMZ Sports, the incident was settled on July 6 after Watson paid a $185 fine. 

Watson appeared during the Browns’ preseason but is serving out an 11-game suspension after the NFL appealed the six-game suspension in August which was handed down by an independent disciplinary officer after more than two dozen woman accused him of sexual misconduct during his time with the Houston Texans.
