HOUSTON (AP) -Houston Texans offensive lineman Chester Pitts was free on bail Friday one day after he was arrested and charged with speeding off during a traffic stop near Reliant Stadium.
Pitts was released from the city jail early Friday after posting bail, according to a jail attendant. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Pitts is facing a charge of felony evading arrest in a motor vehicle, Houston Police Department spokeswoman Gabe Ortiz said.
``We're gathering all the details and information regarding Chester's arrest, and we'll comment at the appropriate time,'' Texans spokesman Tony Wyllie told The Associated Press on Thursday night.
tts was not wearing his seat belt, police said.
While the officer was writing a ticket for another driver, he heard a driver yell that Pitts was ``getting away,'' Ortiz said.
The officer and his supervisor got in separate cars and chased Pitts for less than a mile, where police said he stopped and was arrested.
Pitts, a guard, is the only player to have started each game in franchise history.
