According to a report from The Oklahoman, former Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew was arrested over the weekend for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
Pettigrew, a seven-year NFL veteran with the Detroit Lions prior to being waived by the team in December, was reportedly seen pushing and arguing with two men at about 2 a.m. Sunday in a parking lot outside Pretty Please Social Room at 104 Flaming Lips Alley, according to a police report.
At least 10 officers in the area responded to the scene as Pettigrew was said to be “verbally defiant” to at least 25 commands to leave the area. Police reported Pettigrew initially refused to get in the back seat of a patrol car, had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol upon arrest. He was booked in Oklahoma County Jail and released the same day.
Pettigrew was originally drafted by the Lions 20th overall in the 2009 NFL Draft. He was released by the Lions in December due to a non-football injury and is now a free agent.
