Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Adolphus Washington was arrested on weapons charges this weekend at a water park near Cincinnati.

The 24-year-old was arrested at Splash Cincinnati Indoor Water Park in the suburb of Sharonville, Ohio, at about 10 p.m. on Sunday, per ABC News affiliate WKBW Buffalo. Police were clearing out a crowd in the parking lot when Washington “reached for and displayed a gun while sitting inside his vehicle, just feet away from officers” without informing police beforehand, according to the report obtained by WKBW. He was arrested and has since been released.


According to the water park’s website, it closed at 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The Bills released a statement saying that they are aware of the incident and will not comment further on pending legal matters.

It’s the second arrest in two years for Washington, who was arrested for trying to solicit an undercover police officer in a prostitution sting during his senior season at Ohio State. Buffalo picked him in the third round of last year’s draft.
