Broward Sheriff’s Office records show that a 28-year-old Bess was arrested early on Friday after showing erratic behavior and confronting an officer at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport, something that surprised many fans and pay per head sportsbooks alike.
Bess was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest without violence, and simple assault on an officer. Price per head services found out that at 10:35 a.m. ET he was released on $100 bail. It is not certain if Bess has a lawyer. The Browns said that they are “aware of the situation and currently working to gather more information.”
A sheriff’s report stated that Bess appeared to be “under the influence of an unknown narcotic.” It also said that as they talked, the receiver was “looking through” the officer.
The report said that Bess was “acting irrationally, dancing, singing with his pants repeatedly falling down”.
Pay per head sportsbooks were very surprised when they learned that Bess, at one point, grabbed a cup of coffee that wasn’t his and squeezed it, spraying the officer with coffee. Bess then took a “fighting stance” and the officer hit the receiver on the leg with a baton. According to the report, Bess took off his shirt and stayed in the stance. When more officers arrived he dropped to the ground.
The arrest was made one day after Bess posted a photo on his Twitter page of a small package that contained what seemed to be marijuana. The picture was later removed. On Thursday, the team said it knew of the photo and would take care of the situation internally.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that last April, the Browns acquired Bess via trade from the Miami Dolphins and was given $5.75 million in guaranteed money and a contract extension. He played in Cleveland’s first 14 games, then was not seen again with the team. And this is how a disappointing season ended for Bess, who was once the Dolphins’ Man of the Year due to his community work. This season, the player had career lows with 42 catches for 362 yards.

Cleveland said that Bess had “personal” reasons for not playing in the last two games, but shortly after he left the Browns, a photo popped up on his Instagram account, showing him lighting what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette.
