Browns wide receiver Greg Little got a speeding ticket Monday. As a singular event, hardly worth mentioning. Anybody who has driven an automobile for any length of time knows what it means to get pulled over for driving too fast. But this isn't a singular event for Little, who was clocked going 81 mph in a 60 mph zone, and was cited for expired plates, according to WOIO 19 Action News.

After some digging, WOIO also found that, back in April, Little admitted to driving 127 mph. He lost control of his vehicle, hit a guard rail, knocked down a light pole and left 40 yards worth of brake tracks. The wide receiver received a $350 fine.

In addition to the latest ticket, Little has a warrant for his arrest, which was issued because he didn't appear in court for having fictitious plates.

WOIO also unearthed another Browns-related traffic violation: Wide receiver Josh Gordon, who said in July that "my priorities are definitely in order," failed to show for a court appearance after receiving a ticket for driving 98 mph in a 60 mph zone.

Pat D'Angelo, the lawyer for both players, told WOIO that everything is being resolved.

The Browns, meanwhile, have issued a statement.

"We're aware of the situation involving the players and their unacceptable driving records. We take matters such as this very seriously. We've spoken to both individuals, and will address the issue with the entire team."

In college at North Carolina, Little racked up 93 parking tickets. He was suspended for the 2010 season for accepting improper benefits, and left UNC with more parking tickets than career receptions, 93 to 86.
