Former Dolphins receiver arrested, facing charges after standoff with police

Davone Bess, who hasn't played in the NFL since 2013, is once again facing 
legal issues. This time, his troubles stem from a "standoff" with police and a 
SWAT team, reports indicated Tuesday.
Bess was charged with one felony count each for endangerment, unlawful 
flight, and failure to stop for a police officer. He was released on $2,500 bond 
on Monday night.
On Sunday night, Bess was stopped in Gilbert, Arizona for failing to drive 
with his headlights on, per the documents of his charges. And that's when the 
situation escalated.
According to the report, Bess fled home, where he refused police commands 
and entered his home. Police then obtained a search warrant, and the SWAT 
team eventually entered his house and arrested him.
Bess entered the league in 2008 and spent the first five years of his career 
with the Dolphins. He later joined the Browns, but his time there came to an 
end after only one season. In his career, he caught 363 passes for 3,809 
yards and 14 touchdowns.
