Bills defensive lineman Ed Oliver was arrested overnight in Houston.

According to the Montgomery County Jail, Oliver is being held on one count of driving while intoxicated and one count of unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Oliver was pulled over in response to a 911 call by another driver, according to MontgomeryCountyPoliceReporter.com. According to the report, Oliver had an open beer between his legs and was brought in for a mandatory blood draw before being taken to jail. A search of his car found a pistol. No drugs were found.

The Bills chose Oliver with the ninth overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He had a good rookie season and is viewed as a building block for the Bills’ franchise, but this incident leaves open the possibility that he’ll miss part of this season with a league-mandated suspension.

  1. It’s a good thing the Bills have decent depth on defense……they’ll need it now. SMH!

  2. Without football, the arrest meter will have to be set to hour mode instead of days.

  3. Ed Oliver is so into the Process that he is now sitting in Processing while the rest of his teammates are taking the day off…

  4. I miss the old PFT “days between arrests” ticker that used to be up, but lately it could be an “hours between arrests” ticker…. sad.

  7. The recent NFL police blotter is pretty much all stuff that would not have happened if they had been maintaining isolation at home. Thats gotta be frustrating to the league who is busy trying to figure out how they function within the guidelines that these guys are flaunting. The measures all these teams are having to take to minimize/eliminate the risk of them being exposed to anything become kind of pointless if they just go risk it somewhere else.

    Bills fans were gloating when they drafted this bust, hahaha

    We were gloating when we drafted him and we’ll be gloating after his 4 game suspension… People make mistakes… I’m sure your father would take back a few.

  9. The next remake of The Longest Yard will soon have all genuine NFL players on the prison team instead of actors.

  10. Driving drunk is simply irresponsible, idiotic, and possibly harmful. We just should never do it.

    Everyone, assuming that they arent a convicted felon, should be allowed to carry a gun.

  11. A disappointing setback for a promising young player. Hopefully he learns from this, or otherwise his Bills career will be short-lived.
