Rob Carr/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged was arrested early Saturday morning after officers found a semi-automatic gun in the car he was riding in.

Officers smelled marijuana in the car and found a plastic bottle of vodka and orange juice in the center of the console.

“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 Saturday.

Lefeged was being held without bond at D.C. jail on a weapon charge.

This marks the 27th player in the NFL who has been arrested since the Super Bowl in February.
