Philadelphia Eagles' Daryl Worley arrested, report says; team releases statement

15 April 2018

The Eagles on Sunday confirmed Worley's arrest and issued a statement that read, "We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley's arrest this morning". Officers used a taser on Worley after becoming "combative with police", according to NFL Network.

The incident reportedly occurred near the Eagles team facility around 6 a.m. ET.

Worley reportedly resisted arrest and fought with police before being tased by officers and taken into custody. However, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer, "it is likely" that the Eagles will release Worley following the incident. A third-round pick of the Panthers in 2016, Worley was acquired last month in a trade that sent Torrey Smith to Carolina.

Worley pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge during his college career at West Virginia, and the Panthers chose to move on from the young defensive back after two seasons.

In college, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault over an incident involving a woman at a night club. Worley said then that he was defending his girlfriend.
