It’s been a solid offseason for the Buffalo Bills, however, one of their former players is having a rough time right now. Apparently, former defensive end Alex Carrington was involved in a wild altercation with police before getting arrested.
According to TMZ Sports, “former Buffalo Bills defensive end Alex Carrington was tased during a wild altercation with cops early Monday morning before he was arrested and booked on gun charges and more.”
Early Monday morning, Carrington was pulled over for speeding. However, at one point, the former Bills’ defensive end, “appeared to try to restart his car and flee the scene. But that’s when officers say they tased him and eventually got him out of the car,” per TMZ Sports.
Upon further inspection, the officers on the scene claim,”they noticed (Alex Carrington) had a loaded Glock 17 hidden underneath his leg. They also say they found ‘two more loaded, high capacity magazines’ within the car before they impounded it, according to TMZ Sports.
It sounds like it’s been a rough time for the former Bills player. After playing in 59 games in a six-year career with the team, Carrington finds himself in a whirlwind of trouble with the law. Hopefully, Alex Carrington finds the help he needs to recover, as news like this is never great.
For now, he remains in custody and will likely have a court date set up in the future. Maybe the Bills reach out and lend a helping hand, as Carrington played a major role with the franchise for six seasons. Either way, we hope Alex Carrington receives the help he needs to recover from this incident.
