Nevada cornerback Daniel Brown was arrested Tuesday on three misdemeanor charges.

Brown, 20, was booked at the Washoe County Sheriff's Office at 9:31 p.m. Tuesday night after being pulled over for a basic speeding violation of 11-20 miles per hour over the posted limit. He also was charged with failure to give appropriate signal when required. The third charge was for failure to appear on a previous traffic citation, which led to a warrant for his arrest. That warrant was for a previously unpaid ticket for basic speeding violation of 1-10 miles in Walker River Courtship on Dec. 10, 2018, according to a Nevada Highway Patrol spokesperson.

"We are aware of these traffic violations and will handle this matter internally," Wolf Pack spokesperson Chad Hartley said in a statement to NSN.

Brown posted the $160 bail and was released Wednesday morning.

Brown had a breakout 2018 season, starting all 13 games. He recorded 53 tackles, 12 passes defended, 1.5 tackles for loss and his first career interception, which he returned for a 42-yard touchdown against Portland State. Brown was named All-Mountain West honorable mention following the year. A senior in 2019, Brown missed Nevada's recently completed spring camp following shoulder surgery. He's a projected starter again this season.
