Cleveland Browns Star Player Arrested After Crashing His SUV Into Florida Restaurant, Mugshot Released

Lonnie Phelps, a defensive end for the Cleveland Browns, has gotten himself in huge trouble after he was arrested in Key West, Florida, on Wednesday night.

Key West police arrested Phelps on drunk-driving charges after allegedly crashing his SUV into a local restaurant.

Police revealed that Phelps’s black Hyundai was driven into the Red Shoe Island Bistro restaurant, according to TMZ Sports. He and his girlfriend were both present but said to be uncooperative during the crash and investigation.

Lonnie Phelps ended up being arrested and charged with a DUI.

Investigating cops further added that Phelps “consistently talked over them and disobeyed orders during ensuing lines of questioning,” which all displayed signs of him being impaired and did not help his situation.

Officers stated after some time, Phelps would eventually agree to do voluntary field sobriety tests but would become combative as he complained about how the tests were being administered.

Eventually, cops had enough of him and put him in the back of a squad car. He refused to end his night there as he continued to complain in the back of the cop car.

“Phelps talked about how thirsty he was,” one officer wrote in the report, “how he did not know what I was going to do to him because females are the worst, asked me not to kill him, asked me how long it takes to bail out, how long I was the detective and informed me I was Russian.”

Once Lonnie Phelps got to the station, he did not improve his behavior as he refused to take a breathalyzer and urinated on himself while sitting on a chair, which was yet another sign he was under the influence of alcohol.

Browns Defensive End Lonnie Phelps Signed With Cleveland In 2023 As Undrafted Free Agent

He would be waived and signed to the practice squad for the 2023 season.
