JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jaguars running back Fred Taylor was ordered out of his car at gunpoint, patted down and handcuffed while a K-9 unit searched his vehicle for drugs outside a Miami Beach nightclub over the weekend, according to a police report released Tuesday.
Taylor yelled at officers repeatedly and was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, after they advised him three times to quiet down, according to Miami Beach Police.
``As officers began to check vehicle for weapons, defendant became vocal again and attempted to (incite) the crowd of bystanders,'' the report said. ``Defendant really became vocal when drug dog checked for narcotics.
``He was advised to quiet down ... for a third time. When defendant did not and continued his loud behavior, he was arrested.''
Taylor insisted Monday he wasn't actually arrested; he said he was just issued a citation.
``At this point, I just want to go left of it and take the high road, whether I'm right or wrong. At the end of the day, I'm going to feel more right than wrong,'' Taylor said Monday, suggesting he was provoked by officers.
According to the report, police were called to Club Cristal around 4 a.m. Saturday to respond to an altercation. When officers arrived, they were advised that there might be firearms in a green Mercedes Benz, Taylor's wife's car. They then ordered Taylor and his friends out of the car, which irritated Jacksonville's all-time leading rusher and ultimately led to his arrest.
``Right now, I'm humbled by it,'' Taylor said. ``I'll continue to move forward and do whatever I've got to do to let this blow over.''
