Browner was arrested Sunday in La Verne, which is about 30 miles east of Los Angeles.
Browner is from nearby Pomona and played football for Oregon State before signing with the Seattle Seahawks in 2011. He later played for the New England Patriots when they won the Super Bowl after the 2014 season. Browner was previously arrested for domestic violence.
It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer, but he needs to get one, like now. The NFL should be taking care of their former players, because the last thing they need is more proof football is a serious problem.
