NFL Star Marquise Brown Sentenced In Speeding Case

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown has finally put his speeding case in the rearview mirror … TMZ Sports has learned he was sentenced in an Arizona courtroom on Wednesday.

A judge ordered the NFL star to pay a fine of $473 — after he pled guilty in February to a misdemeanor charge of excessive speed stemming from an August 2022 arrest.

But, Brown won’t have to dole out a cent in the case … the judge decided to waive the fine and just give him credit for time served.

Brown, wearing a letterman jacket and dark-colored pants, said very little during the hearing, only telling the judge, “This is my first time ever getting into anything.”

During the proceedings, Brown’s attorney argued the 25-year-old should be allowed to complete a defensive driving school program to get the case off his record … though the judge did not allow that. She did say, though, the lawyer could file a motion following the hearing, and it would be further considered.

As we reported, Brown was initially arrested in the case on Aug. 3, 2022 … after cops say they caught him going 126 MPH in a 65 MPH zone in a 2020 Mercedes on a highway in Maricopa County.
