Eagles CB Daryl Worley Arrested Near Team Facility
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley was arrested early Sunday morning in South Philadelphia after a dispute with police.
According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Worley was tasered and taken into custody at 6 a.m and a gun was recovered at the scene.
A Philadelphia police source confirmed to 973espn.com that an incident involving Worley took place near Broad and Pattison, which is very close to the team's NovaCare Complex.
Worley was found passed out inside his vehicle blocking traffic. When police approached, the 23-year-old became what was described as "combative" which forced officers to use the Taser.
A Philadelphia native, Worley, 23, was acquired via trade in March from the Carolina Panthers for veteran receiver Torrey Smith. He had a few off-the-field concerns in college at West Virginia before becoming a third-round pick of the Panthers, most notably a nightclub altercation with a woman in which he received a six-month suspended sentence.
"We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley's arrest this morning," the Eagles said when asked for comment by 973espn.com.
Worley is part of an impressive group of outside cornerbacks on the Eagles, a unit which includes starters Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby, along with promising second-year players Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas, who like Worley is a WVU product.
The Eagles are scheduled to begin their nine-week offseason program on Monday.
