CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) -Former Indianapolis Colts defensive back Dexter Reid was arrested Thursday on a fugitive warrant stemming from a gun charge in Virginia Beach.
Police charged the 26-year-old Norfolk native with two felony counts of illegal weapon possession. Reid attracted police attention after parking his car illegally in a handicapped space at a fast food restaurant, said Christi Golden, a Chesapeake police spokeswoman.
Police observed a handgun under an envelope in the 2000 Cadillac sedan after Reid gave them permission to move his car to avoid additional fines. Police said they also found a loaded AK semiautomatic pistol in the trunk.
A records check later indicated an outstanding warrant from Virginia Beach, police said.
Reid, of Chesapeake, was indicted in Virginia Beach earlier this month on a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon. In June, a Virginia Beach grand jury indicted Reid on a felony charge of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. He is set to stand trial on that charge Oct. 9.
The New England Patriots drafted Reid in the fourth round in 2004. He was part of the Patriots' Super Bowl-winning team in 2005 and earned a second ring as part of the Colts this year. The Colts released him shortly after February's Super Bowl win.
