Watch Adolphus Washington arrest video

New, comments

TMZ released a video of the Bills defensive tackle being arrested and a discussion he had with an officer afterward.

Adolphus Washington's arrest video has been made public by TMZ.com.

The Buffalo Bills second-year defensive tackle was charged with "improper handling of a firearm."

Washington has a permit for the gun, and claimed he was putting it away as the police approached his vehicle. He also seemed very cooperative with the arresting officers and during his conversation with a policeman after the arrest.

As the police repeatedly yelled at Washington while nearing his car, the 24-year-old held his hands in the air and asked to move to remove his seat belt so he could exit.

The former Ohio State standout is due in court in Ohio on July 24. Obviously it could be a while before this case is settled, and for the Bills and/or the NFL to make a decision on whether or not Washington will face any team/league discipline.
