CINCINNATI, OHIO (WIVB) – TMZ Sports has released video footage of Adolphus Washington’s arrest near a Sharonville, Ohio water park last weekend.

Washington, a defensive lineman for the Buffalo Bills, was arrested Sunday on a concealed weapons charge in his home state of Ohio.

The video shows police officers yelling for Washington not to move, then instructing him to exit his vehicle.

“You don’t know how lucky you are, man,” an officer is heard saying in the video.

The officer then questions why Washington would have a gun in his when a police officer is in sight.

Washington indicates in the video that he was trying to put the firearm away.

Lt. Steve Vanover of the Sharonville Police Department tells News 4 Washington has a permit for the gun, but says it was the way in which he was handling it which led to the weapons charge.

Washington was released after being booked on the charge. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
