Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver Jr. was arrested Saturday night for Driving While Intoxicated … and to make things worse, cops say he was also illegally carrying a GUN in his truck.
22-year-old Oliver was stopped in Montgomery County, Texas at around 9 PM after someone called 911 and said the truck Oliver was driving was swerving dangerously close to a construction zone.
When Cops approached Oliver — who was driving a Ford Super Duty pickup truck that was hauling a trailer with a dune buggy — they say the NFL player had an open can of beer between his legs … not a great start.
Then he allegedly bombed a field sobriety test — which included standing on one foot.
During a subsequent search of Oliver’s vehicle, cops say they found a pistol.
Oliver — the 9th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft — was arrested for DWI and unlawfully carrying a weapon.
Cops say he was taken to a local hospital for a blood draw to get his blood alcohol level before he was ultimately taken to jail.
We reached out to the NFL players rep for comment … so far, no word back.
Oliver was a 3-time 1st team All American in college during his days at the University of Houston.
He put together a pretty solid rookie campaign with 5 sacks and 43 tackles.
