Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon didn’t appear in Berea Municipal Court this morning as previously scheduled because attorney Gary A. Vick entered a not guilty plea on his behalf Tuesday for a speeding ticket the All Pro received during Memorial Day weekend in Strongsville, court records show.
A new court date has yet to be set.
Gordon was pulled over in his gray 2014 Mercedes-Benz SUV at 9:43 p.m. May 25 for traveling northbound on Interstate 71 at 74 mph in a 60 mph zone, according to the ticket issued by the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s deputy who stopped him. He was fined $187.
The incident made headlines because a passenger in Gordon’s vehicle received a citation for possession of marijuana in an amount less than 200 grams during the traffic stop.
Gordon is appealing a potential season-long suspension from the NFL stemming from a reported failed marijuana test. He also served a two-game suspension last season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
