SHARONVILLE, Ohio -- Buffalo Bills defensive tackle and Taft High School grad Adolphus Washington was arrested Sunday on weapons charges, according to the Sharonville Police Department.

Police documents said Washington "reached for and displayed a gun while sitting inside his vehicle just feet away from officers" as they broke up a crowd near Splash (Cincinnati) Water Park.

Washington, 24, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon. 

"We are aware of the incident regarding Adolphus Washington and have been in contact with him," the Buffalo Bills said in a statement. "Since it is a pending legal matter, we will have no further comment."

In December 2015, Washington was cited for soliciting a prostitute. As a result, he was suspended from playing in the Fiesta Bowl.

Washington was named first team All-American in 2015 and was part of Ohio State's National Championship team in 2014.

While at Taft, the football team went to the playoffs in 2010 and 2011; he also played basketball and was part of the 2011 Division III state championship team.
