Police confirmed on Sunday that NFL free agent Duane Brown was arrested at the Los Angeles International Airport for allegedly carrying a firearm in his luggage, police confirmed Sunday. The 36-year-old Brown was passing through standard screening at LAX Terminal 6 on Saturday when Transportation Security Administration agents found the unloaded weapon in his luggage.
Los Angeles County Jail records show that Brown was arrested around 3:08 p.m. on Saturday and was released just hours later on a $10,000 bond. Jail records show that the all-pro left tackle is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 3, though his charges were not listed. TMZ reported that Brown was charged with possession of a concealed firearm.
Brown played college football for Virginia Tech before he was drafted by the Houston Texans as the No. 26 pick in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He started in all 16 games as a rookie for the Texans during the 2008 season and was granted a six-year extension worth $53.4 million in 2012. Brown was later traded to the Seahawks in the middle of the 2017 NFL season and he signed a three-year contract with the team worth $36.5 million in 2018. The Seahawks let his contract expire at the end of last season and he is considered one of the top free agents in the league.
