Cleveland Browns wide receiver Davone Bess was reportedly arrested on Friday morning for assaulting an officer/firefighter. As CBS Miami first reported, Bess was taken into custody by police at Fort Lauderdale International Airport at around 6:19 a.m.
TMZ Sports later obtained a copy of the incident report, which stated that Bess went after a police officer with a cup of hot coffee. Police reportedly responded to passenger complaints about a man at a TSA checkpoint who was “acting irrationally, dancing, singing with his pants repeatedly falling down.”
When cops arrived at the scene, Bess allegedly grabbed a cup of coffee that didn’t belong to him and squeezed it so hard that it splashed on a police officer. The report says Bess then took a “fighting stance,” which prompted the cop to strike him in the leg with a baton.
The officer said the baton had “no effect” and Bess then took his shirt off and reassumed his fighting position. When backup arrived, Bess complied and was taken into custody where he was booked for simple assault on an officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. The arresting officer added that Bess “appeared to be under the influence of unknown narcotic” and “appeared to be looking through me when I was talking to him.”
Bess has found himself in hot water on numerous occasions over the past month. On Dec. 21, the 28-year-old posted a photo on Instagram of himself holding a blunt that may or may not have contained marijuana. Then on Thursday, Bess tweeted another photo of weed that appeared to be less open for interpretation. The Browns said they are looking into the most recent picture.
