 MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Fred Evans was arrested early Saturday after he refused to leave a taxi on South Beach and then fought with officers, police said.
Police twice used a Taser gun on Evans, according to the arrest report, in attempts to subdue the 6-foot-4, 305-pound player who appeared in one game as a rookie last season with the Dolphins. Officers said they asked Evans to leave the taxi and, after he refused, they attempted to put him in handcuffs. He allegedly resisted, leading to the scuffle.
Evans was charged with multiple counts of battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting with violence, along with single counts of disorderly intoxication and trespassing. One officer was allegedly bitten on the wrist and a female officer sustained scrapes on her left knee, police said.
Dolphins coach Cam Cameron, in a brief statement, said the team was aware of Evans' arrest.
``We will not condone this type of behavior,'' Cameron said. ``I assure everyone it will be dealt with seriously.''
Evans' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
