Police release arrest video of Buffalo Bills player in OhioJuly 13, 2017 1:58am

SHARONVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio on Wednesday released cruiser and body cam video of the arrest of Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Adolphus Washington on a weapons charge.

The Cincinnati native and former Ohio State standout is accused of improperly carrying a concealed weapon outside a water park in Sharonville. A police report says officers were breaking up a crowd at the park Sunday night when Washington "reached for and displayed a gun while sitting inside his vehicle, just feet away from officers."

The video shows Washington in his vehicle, with officers surrounding him and shouting at him to "put the gun down."

Washington is later seen in a cruiser with an officer asking him: "Why in the hell would you have that gun in your hands?"

He replied that he was "putting it away."

Washington was processed at the Sharonville Police Department and released that night. Court records do not list an attorney for him.

The Buffalo Bills released a statement Monday night saying they were aware of the situation and had been in contact with Washington.

The Bills have been off on break since mid-June before players begin reporting for training camp, which opens July 27.

Washington is due in court in Hamilton County on July 24th.
