Antonio Brown‘s bank account is now .00005 percent less than what it was yesterday … ’cause the NFL superstar was just fined a whopping $25 in court after pleading guilty to “Driving at Safe Speed.”
Here’s the deal … AB was busted back in November after cops say they caught his black Porsche going 100-plus MPH in a 45 just outside of Pittsburgh.

Brown was cited for reckless driving, and after he failed to show up for his court date in February … he was found guilty of the charge and was sentenced to pay around $400 in fines and fees.
But AB appealed the case … and actually showed up for his new hearing Tuesday (he made a video from inside the courthouse!) — and ended up pleading guilty to a lesser charge of “Driving at Safe Speed.”
No, that’s not a typo — “driving at a safe speed” is an actual violation in Pennsylvania — defined as driving “a vehicle at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions.”
Brown’s punishment for that? A staggering $25 fine plus other court fees.
Of course, chump change for the wide receiver … the guy just signed a new $50,125,000 deal with the Raiders.
Yeah, still great to be rich.
