A former Buccaneers guard has allegedly continued what appears to be a pattern of violent behavior off the field.

According to the Tampa Tribune, former Bucs guard Cosey Coleman was arrested on felony charges of  aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and battery.

The 37-year-old Coleman was arrested at his home following an incident outside a sports bar. He was caught on video punching a fellow patron of Ducky’s Sports Lounge. After being taken outside, he stopped his car in the parking lot when he saw the man he punched leaving the bar. He then grabbed a gun from inside the car, cocked it and pointed it toward the man. Security grabbed him to prevent things from escalating further.

Coleman was arrested twice previously in Hillsborough County for domestic violence,  in 2002 and 2008.

A former second-round pick of the Bucs in 2000, Coleman played seven seasons in the NFL, finishing up with the Browns.
