Former Ohio State and current Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Adolphus Washington is in trouble with the law once again.

Sharonville, Ohio police arrested the Cincinnati native Sunday at an area waterpark for improper concealment of a firearm.

The Cincinnati Enquirer broke the news:

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."

At the time of the arrest, police were clearing out a crowd from the park's parking lot, the police report says.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. Police later released Washington.
