Former NFL defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested in Mobile, Alabama, on Friday and charged with two counts of menacing.
Police told Fox 10 in Mobile that Fairley allegedly threatened someone with a gun. No motive for Fairley’s actions was given, and no injuries were reported.
Fairley posted bail about an hour after being booked into jail on Friday.
A first-round pick of the Detroit Lions in 2011, Fairley hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016 with the New Orleans Saints. He missed the 2017 season due to a heart condition and was released in February.
