Bills DL Adolphus Washington arrested on weapons charge

Adolphus Washington of the Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Adolphus Washington was arrested on Sunday in Cincinnati on a firearms charge at a waterpark.

Washington has been accused of carrying a concealed firearm near the Splash Park at 11320 Chester Road in Cincinnati, according to Bob Strickley of Cincinnati.com.

“According to a Sharonville police report, Washington around 10 p.m. Sunday ‘reached for and displayed a gun while sitting inside his vehicle; just feet away from officers. The suspect did not inform officers beforehand.'”

Police were at the waterpark at the time of Washington’s arrest to clear out a crowd. He was later released by police the same evening.

It’s not Washington’s first brush with the law, as he previously was arrested for┬ásolicitation of prostitution back in December of 2015. That arrest occurred while he was still a member of the Ohio State Buckeyes, and it resulted in his suspension from the Fiesta Bowl that season.

A third-round pick by the Bills last year, Washington appeared in 15 games and started 11, tallying 21 tackles and 2.5 sacks.
