Today has been a day full of Antonio Brown news. Beginning with Brown releasing a ‘thank you’ video which was his way of requesting a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Antonio Brown news did not end there, as it turns out he skipped his court date for a police chase he was involved in back on November 8th, 2018.
Before a Steelers home game against the Carolina Panthers on the 8th of November, Brown was being chased by a police officer that cited him going 100 MPH in a 45 speed limit zone. Brown had a court date set to appeal the incident, but it looks like he had a change of thoughts there…
Brown’s trial was scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. Channel 11 spoke to his attorney on the way into the courtroom and he seemed under the impression Brown would show.
When Brown didn’t appear by 9 a.m. the judge found him guilty in absence. Brown’s attorney walked out of the courtroom alone and did not want to provide a statement.

Are the Steelers going to be able to trade Brown after all the negative publicity he is brining to himself?
