Free agent offensive tackle Duane Brown was arrested Saturday at Los Angeles International Airport for allegedly carrying a concealed weapon in his luggage, according to multiple reports.
The 14-year NFL veteran, who played the past four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, was detained while going through security Saturday afternoon, Airport Police Lt. Karla Rodriguez said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
The gun was not loaded, according to TMZ, which published video of Brown being escorted out of the airport by police.
He was taken into custody and is facing a charge of possessing a concealed firearm, Rodriguez said. Brown’s name appears in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department inmate database, which says he was booked on a misdemeanor charge and released later Saturday on $10,000 bond.
He has a court date set for August 3.
Brown, who played collegiately at Virginia Tech, was a first-round pick of the Houston Texans in the 2008 NFL draft, going 26th overall.
He spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Texans, being named first-team All-Pro in 2012 and going to three consecutive Pro Bowls from 2012-14.
Brown was traded to the Seahawks in 2017, earning Pro Bowl nods that season and in 2021 before becoming a free agent this offseason.
