Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Ventell Bryant was arrested on Wednesday morning in Tampa and was charged with driving under the influence.

According to The Athletic’s Greg Auman, Bryant was pulled over by officers at 2:24 a.m. when police noticed his Dodger Charger didn’t have its headlights on. After pulling the 23-year-old over, Bryant showed signs of impairment and he admitted to drinking margaritas.

Bryant submitted to a breathalyzer and tested with a blood-alcohol level of .102 and .099, per The Athletic. Officers booked him into custody and he was being held on $500 bond early on Wednesday morning with the misdemeanor charge.

An undrafted free agent in 2019, Bryant started his NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals. He joined the Cowboys’ practice squad in September, then made his NFL debut in October.

Bryant mainly contributed on special teams this past season across 12 games, but he hauled in a 15-yard touchdown catch against the Buffalo Bills.
