CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs has asked for a trial to contest his recent speeding ticket after pleading not guilty Friday, according to court records.
He appeared in Cleveland Municipal Court at 1:30 Friday afternoon and pleaded not guilty to driving his 2010 Bentley at 103 mph in a 60 mph zone on April 20, court records show.
He was represented by attorney Pat D'Angelo.
The trial on the misdemeanor charge has been scheduled for 9 a.m. May 16 before Judge Lauren C. Moore, according to the court schedule.
Cribbs was ticketed for driving his 2010 Bentley 103 mph in a 60 mph zone at 8:45 p.m. April 20, according to Cleveland Municipal Court records.
Cribbs, 28, of North Royalton, was stopped driving northbound on Interstate 71 near Fulton Road on April 20 by the Cuyahoga County Sheriiff's department after a laser gun clocked him.
Following the incident, Cribbs tweeted on his Twitter page: "Yes I was pulled over for speeding, going to 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"...."Much Respect to the police officers who pulled me over! I will lead better on the road now as well as on & off the field!!!"
If found guilty, that would be 2 points added to his driver's license.
