Add Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged to the list of NFL players arrested this offseason. And yes, that list is getting uncomfortably long.
Lefeged was arrested Saturday morning after allegedly being the passenger in a car that sped away from police during a traffic stop in Washington D.C.
Oh, after the chase ended, a non-registered gun was found in the front seat.
He's facing a variety of gun related charges. The driver of the car, a Timothy Wilson was also arrested and has some traffic offenses to deal with too.

This just adds to an offseason that has featured nearly 30-players being arrested since the season officially ended in mid-February. And while maybe that wouldn't be considered an "Epidemic", we are reasonably certain the league and Commissioner Jolly Roger Goodell are probably none too pleased about this.
The Colts haven't at this time (1:30pm Saturday) released a statement regarding Lefeged's arrest. However, this is a small sliver of what appears to be, an-NFL-wide problem.
PM UPDATE: A statement was released four hours later and it was insightful...
We are aware of the reports regarding Joe Lefeged in Washington, D.C. At this time, we will have no further comment on the pending matter until we gain more information.
