MIAMI — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Davone Bess has been arrested in Florida on charges of assaulting a law enforcement officer at an airport.

Broward Sheriff’s Office records show Bess was arrested early Friday morning after acting erratically and confronting an officer at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. It wasn’t clear if Bess had a lawyer.

The arrest comes one day after Bess posted a photo on his Twitter page of a small package containing what appears to be marijuana. The photo was later deleted.

A Browns spokesman said the team was aware of the arrest of the 28-year-old Bess. The Browns signed Bess last year to a three-year, $11.5 million contract after acquiring him from the Miami Dolphins. This season Bess had career lows with 42 catches for 362 yards.
