The Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department has confirmed that a deputy gave a ticket to Browns receiver Greg Little.

The traffic stop happened Monday night about 8:30 p.m. on I-71 near the turnpike in Strongsville.

The ticket shows Little was stopped for speeding while going 81 MPH in a 60 MPH zone. The ticket also shows Little was cited for expired plates.

This speeding ticket made us do some more digging. We looked at Little's driving record and found more.

Back in April records show Little admitted going 127 MPH. 

He lost control on the Jennings Freeway at Spring Road. Cleveland police found he hit a guardrail, knocked down a light pole and left 40 yards of brake tracks. Police also say he had a passenger in the car who was scared and left the scene.

For that crash Little got a $350 fine. 

After checking his overall driving record we found a speeding conviction and a conviction for no operator's license.

A Cuyahoga County sheriff's deputy made the latest stop.   

Little is one of the most talented players on the Browns. He could've hurt someone or hurt himself and ended his career.

Little also had a warrant for his arrest. It was issued because he didn't go to court for having fictitious plates.

When 19 Action News broke this story reporter Paul Orlousky got a tip about Browns receiver Josh Gordon. He hadn't shown for court for a minor speeding ticket, he was going 45 MPH in a 25 MPH zone back in May. Just last week Gordon was stopped for doing 98 MPH in a 60 MPH. 

Pat D'Angelo, the attorney for both players, says it's all being resolved.

The Cleveland Browns released the following 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.

Little is due in court on September 4 in Berea.
