Cincinnati Bengals fullback Orson Charles was arrested in Kentucky for wanton endangerment, according to a report from The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Wanton endangerment is a term used to describe someone that engages in a behavior that puts another person's safety or life at risk.
As of Tuesday morning, Charles was awaiting arraignment in Richmond, Ky.
Charles was a standout tight end at the University of Georgia and was originally drafted to play that position with the Bengals. He's since been moved to fullback and hasn't seen substantial playing time since being taken in the fourth round of the 2012 draft.
