Hargrove was one of hundreds of people involved in an altercation outside the Venu Night Club around 2 a.m., Rochester police said. He was arguing with a bouncer when police arrived and is accused of shoving an officer in the face, breaking his glasses but not injuring him.
Hargrove was charged with harassment, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.
He was sent to the Monroe County Jail on $1,100 bail.
The Bills are holding training camp in suburban Rochester, but Sunday was a day off. Hargrove was limited in practice over the past week with a hamstring injury. He's entering his fourth NFL season. The Bills acquired him in a trade with St. Louis in October.
Hargrove played 10 games with the Bills last season, registering 25 tackles and a sack.
Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said the team was aware of the arrest, but much of the staff was in transit Sunday after attending running back Thurman Thomas' induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on Saturday night.
``We are in the process of gathering all the information and it will probably take most of today to do so,'' Berchtold said. He added that the team will have further comment when the Bills return to practice Monday.
