SJ - April 24, 2021

Steelers cornerback Justin Layne was arrested near Cleveland on Friday.  He was driving on a suspended license and was pulled over for driving 89 in a 60 mph zone.

To make matters worse police found a gun and marijuana residue in his car.  Layne now faces charges of speeding, driving with a suspended license and improper handling of a firearm.

A video of Layne's arrest has been released.

From TMZ Sports:

The 23-year-old -- who was a Steelers third-round pick in 2019 -- was pulled over after cops say he was doing 89 MPH in a 60 MPH zone in his 2020 Dodge Charger.

During the stop, officers put him in the back of a patrol car while they searched his ride ... and that's when Layne got on the phone with some of his friends to talk them through his situation.

While on the line ... Layne can be heard telling one friend, "I'm nervous as f***, bro. They about to get me."

Layne continued, "They might get me for the pistol, bro." He later told his friend that he had a blunt in the car.

Cops say they eventually found weed residue, a grinder and a loaded Glock 9mm pistol during their search of his car ... and released photos of their findings to TMZ Sports.

I'll never understand speeding when you have a suspended license and are "improperly handling a firearm."  Whatever that means.
