WASHINGTON (AP) — Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged is due in a Washington, D.C., court on a gun possession charge.
Lefeged was arrested early Saturday after police found a semi-automatic pistol in the car he was riding in. Police say they also smelled marijuana in the car and found a bottle containing vodka.
The car had been pulled over for speeding but then sped away. Police say Lefeged and another passenger were caught after they tried to run from officers.
He’s been ordered held pending Tuesday’s hearing in D.C. Superior Court.
The Colts have said they’re aware of the arrest and won’t be making additional comments until they gather more details.
Lefeged, who grew up in Montgomery County, Md., is entering his third NFL season.
