It’s more issues for Browns 7th round pick Armonty Bryant, as he was charged Monday with driving under the influence of alcohol.
Bryant was arrested on Friday in Ada, Oklahoma, according to a police report. He was charged in Pontotoc County District Court and a court appearance was scheduled for Tuesday.
According to an arrest affidavit, Bryant was stopped early Friday near the stadium at East Central University, where he was a standout player for the Division II school. His blood-alcohol level was 0.098 percent; the legal limit in Oklahoma is 0.08.
He was the 217th overall pick by the Browns last month, and after he was picked Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said that Bryantis “past the mistakes that he has made and ready to move on. He has matured.”
He had already racked up one arrest on a felony charge of marijuana distribution in a school zone. He pleaded no contest.
Following Bryant’s DUI arrest, the team said in a statement it is aware of what happened and is “collecting more information.”
Bryant is scheduled to take part in rookie minicamp beginning Friday in Berea.
