ROCKY RIVER, Ohio – Cleveland Brown’s broad receiver Rashard Higgins and offensive attacker Jedrick Wills pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to fewer speeding charges during a drag racing incident in Westlake.
Higgins, 26, and Wills, aged 21, each paid a $ 250 fine to resolve the incident, which began on January 5 at 9:30 a.m. on Crocker Road in the Rocky River Municipal Court, according to the Rocky River Municipal Court Near Coventry Drive.
According to a Rocky River police report, Higgins and Wills took off together in their own cars and sped side by side.
Police pulled them over and found a marijuana joint in one of the cars, the report said, although it is unclear which car it was found in. The police destroyed the joint and issued a warning, the report said.
Higgins attorney Kevin Spellacy previously told cleveland.com that most of the area’s law enforcement agencies are no longer citing people for possession of small amounts of marijuana.
