Adolphus Washington, 24, was arrested Sunday outside of a waterpark in Sharonville, Ohio, around 10 p.m on a concealed weapon charge. The suspect did not inform officers beforehand.

The Buffalo Bills released a statement Monday night saying they're aware of the situation and have been in contact with Washington. "Since it is a pending legal matter, we will have no further comment".

Once in the hotel room, Washington told the officer he wanted a "short stay" at the hotel, authorities say.

This isn't Washington's first run-in with law enforcement.

It's his second arrest since 2015, when he was arrested for trying to solicit a prostitute at Ohio State. Washington pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor after paying an undercover officer $100 for sex.
