Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver was arrested on Saturday night near Houston and charged with driving while intoxicated and unlawfully carrying a weapon.
According to Montgomery County Jail, Oliver, 22, performed a field sobriety test and was then handcuffed. He was wearing a grey shirt with the Bills’ logo.
A sheriff’s deputy pulled him over around 9pm local time after a caller reported that the driver of a white Ford pickup truck, which was towing a dune buggy, was driving erratically and failing to stay in his lane along State Highway 242 in a construction zone.
The Montgomery County Jail also said the deputy spotted an open beer between Oliver’s legs and called for a deputy certified in administering a field sobriety test to come to the scene. A search of his car found a gun.
Oliver was arrested and taken to a local hospital to have a blood-alcohol level test, then was taken to Montgomery County Jail. The Houston Chronicle reported he later was released on an unspecified bond.
