Vontaze Burfict found plenty of trouble on the field in the NFL. Now the linebacker is in trouble with the law, according to multiple reports.

The former Cincinnati Bengal has been arrested in Nevada on a battery charge, according to multiple reports citing Clark County court records.

Burfict, who is currently a free agent, was being held on $1,000 bond – per the reports – with a hearing in the case set for Monday.

Per Cincinnati.com:

Burfict, 30, played for the Bengals from 2012 to 2018. After playing four games for the Raiders during the 2019 season, Burfict was suspended without pay for the remainder of the season for “repeated violations of unnecessary roughness rules” after a helmet-to-helmet hit on the Indianapolis Colts’ Jack Doyle.

Burfict was reinstated in February from his suspension and was working in various ways to clean up his play for the 2020 NFL season and beyond, according to a report.
