Browns defensive back Wright chased down by police, faces charges

PEARLAND, Texas -- Cleveland Browns defensive back Kenny Wright was released from jail after posting $5,000 bail following a foot chase and arrest for a disturbance outside a police station.

Wright was charged with unlawful restraint, evading arrest and possessing marijuana. Police said they found marijuana in his vehicle.

Police said they were investigating an argument in the station parking lot Thursday when the 30-year-old football player took off and led officers on a quarter-mile foot chase. He was caught in a nearby subdivision of the Houston suburb.

The unlawful restraint charge carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail, while the other counts carry terms up to six months.
