TAMPA - Former Buccaneer Arron Sears was arrested after he was found wandering along a Tampa street Saturday afternoon.
According to the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office, Sears was very confused when he was found walking down the middle of the road in the 7900 block of Gunn Highway around 3 p.m.
Deputies planned to Baker Act him but found Tampa Police had an outstanding warrant on Sears stemming from a June incident, where he had been charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, a third class felony.
He is currently being held on a $2,000 bond.
Sears, an offensive tackle, was a 2nd round draft pick for the Bucs in 2007.
He started 31 games for the team before he was diagnosed with a neurological condition in 2009 and was eventually waived by Tampa Bay in April.
