Report: Rams’ Ethan Westbrooks arrested on gun charges

By Vincent Frank

Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks was reportedly arrested over the weekend by Bakersfield Police in California for possession of an unregistered gun.

“Westbrooks was stopped this weekend by police in Bakersfield for speeding when sources say police found a firearm not registered to Westbrooks in his vehicle,” a local CBS affiliate in Los Angeles reported Monday.

Westbrooks was released on bail and is expected to practice with the team on Monday.

This comes after the fourth-year pro was arrested on domestic violence charges in Sacramento last March. However, charges were ultimately dropped in that case.

A full-time starter for the Rams over the past two seasons, Westbrooks has recorded five tackles and a sack in three games this season. It remains to be seen if this most-recent arrest will impact his standing with the team.
