Browns dealing with Christmas day arrests


‘Tis the season for speeding, popping Adderrall, drinking alcohol and carrying a gun… and of course getting arrested.

That’s basically the story that transpired on Christmas day as police pulled over a car driven by Cleveland Browns practice squad safety De’Ante Saunders on a Cleveland area highway.

Saunders was cited for driving 75 mph in a 60 mph zone. He refused a breathalyzer, which is an automatic 1-year license suspension, per ABC News.

His more important passenger, Browns linebacker Armonty Bryant was in possession of the drug Adderrall without a prescription.

And last but not least – a gun was found in the vehicle, apparently belonging to Saunders, who does not have a permit for it.

GM Ray Farmer released a statement after the news broke:

“These are charges that we take very seriously,” he said. “The importance of responsible decision-making is something we continually stress to all members of our organization, which makes it extremely disappointing that these two individuals would put themselves in this situation by making such poor decisions.”

Armonty, who has 5.5 sacks so far this season, is in the midst of a breakout year. He did not travel with the team for their Sunday matchup against Kansas City.
