Browns' players Armonty Bryant, De'Ante Saunders arrested
The stupidity and irresponsibility continues to run rampant in Cleveland.
Browns outside linebacker Armonty Bryant and cornerback De'Ante Saunders were arrested early Christmas morning.
Saunders was charged with driving under the influence.
A gun was confiscated from his car.
Bryant won't play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Saunders is on the practice squad. He ranks second on the team with 5 1/2 sacks.
At East Central University in Oklahoma, Bryant was arrested for selling marijuana. After being drafted by the Browns, he was arrested for driving under the influence.
"We are aware of the arrests of De'Ante Saunders and Armonty Bryant after a traffic stop early Friday morning," Browns general manager Ray Farmer said in a statement. "These are charges that we take very seriously. The importance of responsible decision-making is something we continually stress to all members of our organization, which makes it extremely disappointing that these two individuals would put themselves in this situation by making such poor decisions.
"Armonty will be inactive on Sunday for our game against the Chiefs and will not travel with the team to Kansas City so he can tend to this personal legal matter. In addition to being a pending legal matter, this incident is subject to the NFL personal conduct policy and we have no further comment at this time."
