Cleveland Browns all -purpose player Josh Cribbs has often been speedy and elusive on the footbal field.

It turns out that he is also that way on the interstate, perhaps a little too much, as he was clocked doing 103 mph in a 60 mph zone, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Cribbs was driving his 2010 Bentley when he was clocked 43 mph over the speed limit by a sheriff's deputy, netting him a citation and a court date next month.

Cribbs tweeted about the incident, saying "Yes I was pulled over for speeding, going too fast, luckily the police were on the job. Wasn't going that fast the entire time obviously but wrong is wrong, gotta face the music just like anyone else"
