Steelers first-round pick, former Canes star Artie Burns arrested

By: Andy Slater

Steelers cornerback Artie Burns was arrested in Miami Beach on Thursday night. 

Police say they stopped his SUV when they noticed it had an expired license-plate tag.

Cops then placed the former Canes star in handcuffs after they saw his license was suspended.

Burns failed to pay $1,012.20 in traffic tickets and did not show up for a mandatory court date, according to records.

One of the tickets shows Burns was driving 130 mph in a 60 mph speed zone.

The Steelers' 2016 first-round pick signed a contract worth more than $9 million, including a $5 million signing bonus.

The Miami Herald was first to mention the arrest.
