 CLEVELAND (AP) -Cleveland Browns rookie receiver Mike Mason was arrested Sunday after refusing demands from two off-duty police officers to leave a downtown nightclub at closing time.
Mason struggled with one of the officers and was shocked with a stun gun, Lt. Thomas Stacho said Monday. The 22-year-old Mason was charged with aggravated disorderly conduct, obstructing official business and resisting arrest - all misdemeanors.
The officers confronted Mason while trying to clear patrons from the club about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
Mason refused orders to put down his drink and leave, and when the officers tried to take the drink, he ``apparently slapped one of the officers' arms away'' and the two began struggling, Stacho said.
Mason appeared in court Monday and later posted bail.
He was drafted out of Tennessee State and signed with Cleveland as a free agent in May. Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz said in a statement that the team was aware of Mason's arrest and ``takes matters such as these very seriously.''
