Browns outside linebacker Armonty Bryant and practice squad defensive back De’Ante Saunders were arrested early Friday.
Scott Taylor of WOIO Channel 19 in Cleveland was first to report the arrests on Twitter. Taylor reported that Saunders was charged with OVI and speeding but the reason Bryant was arrested has not yet been released by the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Per the report, police found a gun and the prescription drug Adderall in the car.
A statement from Browns general manager Ray Farmer released Saturday morning said Bryant won’t make the trip to Kansas City for Sunday’s game vs. the Chiefs.
“These are charges that we take very seriously,” Farmer’s statement said. “The importance of responsible decision-making is something we continually stress to all members of our organization, which makes it extremely disappointing that these two individuals would put themselves in this situation by making such poor decisions.”
Bryant was arrested on a DUI charge the week after he was drafted in 2013. He has a career-best 5.5 sacks this season.
Saunders is a rookie who signed to the practice squad in November.
