Indianapolis colts safety Joe Lefeged was been arrested early Saturday morning in Washington, D.C. for being in possession of a semi-automatic pistol, per ESPN.com.

Lefeged was a passenger in a car that fled from a traffic stop in D.C. Officers smelled marijuana in the car and found a bottle of vodka in the vehicle and the gun under the passenger's seat. Lefeged and another passenger in the car were apprehended trying to flee on foot. The driver also fled on foot and was not immediately caught.

A receipt and paperwork showed that Lefeged had purchased the gun earlier this year for $900.

"We are aware of the reports regarding Joe Lefeged in Washington, D.C. At this time, we will have no further comment on the pending matter until we gain more information," the Colts said in a statement.

Lefeged is being held without bond.
