Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Ed Oliver was arrested on Saturday night on charges of driving while intoxicated and unlawfully carrying a weapon.
The arrest was made by the Montgomery County Police Department as Oliver was in his hometown of Houston, Texas.
The police department received a phone call from a concerned driver stating that someone was driving dangerously in a 45 MPH construction zone, according to the Montgomery County Police Reporter. When the police pulled over the vehicle which was being driven by Oliver, an open beer was located between the Bills player’s legs. Additionally, while searching the vehicle, police discovered a pistol.
“We are aware of the situation and we are gathering more information,” said the Bills via a statement, according to ESPN. “We will have no further comment at this point.”
Oliver was the ninth overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft after spending three years at the University of Houston. During his rookie season in Buffalo, the 22-year-old recorded five sacks and 43 tackles, including five tackles for loss.
