Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley has been arrested.
According to a source, Worley was arrested around 6 a.m. Sunday.
The source tells 6abc Action News a call came in for a car blocking a highway in South Philadelphia.
Worley was found passed out behind the wheel when officers arrived, the source says.
Preliminary information indicates that Worley became combative and officers used a Taser.
A gun was reportedly found.
Worley is being held at Philadelphia police headquarters.
The Philadelphia Eagles released a statement Sunday saying, “We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley’s arrest this morning.”
