Free agent offensive tackle Duane Brown was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday for alleged possession of a concealed gun.
Brown, a five-time Pro Bowl pick, posted $10,000 bail and was released from custody at 11:32 p.m. PT, according to an online record.
He is expected in LAX Superior Court on August 3 for a hearing on the charge, which is a misdemeanor.
TMZ reported that the gun, unloaded, was found in Brown’s luggage by airport security. He was arrested at 3:08 p.m. PT.
Brown, 36, started in all 17 games for the Seattle Seahawks last season, his fifth with the franchise, and became a free agent this offseason. He was drafted into the Pro Bowl last season as a replacement for Trent Williams by the San Francisco 49ers.
Despite struggling with knee problems and managing his training load heavily, Brown hasn’t missed a game in either of the last two seasons. As of 2018, he ranks seventh among offensive tackles in pass block win rate (91.8%).
Brown was selected in the first round (26th overall) of the 2008 draft by the Houston Texans, who traded him to Seattle in 2017
