HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Former University of Hawaii and current Cleveland Browns wide receiver Davone Bess was arrested and charged with assault on an officer, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer/obstruction with violence after an incident at Fort Lauderdale International airport Friday morning, according to multiple reports.

The 28-year old was released from the Broward County Jail after posting a $100 bond.

The Browns issued the following statement following his arrest, "The team is aware of the situation and currently working to gather more information.

The arrest is just the latest incident in a disturbing month for the receiver.

Bess missed a pair of practices in late December due to personal reasons and was placed on the non-football/reserve list for the final two games of the regular season.

At the time, the Browns declined to comment further on Bess' situation out of respect for him and also not to compromise any privacy laws concerning his condition but stressed that his excused absence from the team had nothing to do with illegal activity.

On Thursday, Bess posted a picture on his Twitter account showing what appeared to be a bag of marijuana next to a lit cigar or joint.

A spokesman with the Browns says the team is aware of the photo and investigating the situation 'internally.'
