    Police say Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated after speeding down a street in Raleigh.

    Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said Gordon was taken into custody after being pulled over for going 50 mph in a 35 mph zone on U.S. 70 in northwest Raleigh around 3 a.m. Saturday.

    Gordon was released on bail. Court records did not list an attorney.

    The 23-year-old Pro Bowl wide receiver has been in trouble before off the field. He missed two games last season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy and reportedly failed another drug test during the offseason, which could lead to a season-long ban.

    Browns General Manager Ray Farmer said the team is aware of the arrest and is disappointed. He didn't comment further.
