CHICAGO (AP) — Former Seattle Seahawks player John Moffitt has been arrested on battery and drug possession charges at a Chicago nightclub.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Assistant State’s Attorney Stephanie Gersch says Moffitt was found with a gram of cocaine, four ecstasy pills and 10 grams of marijuana early Sunday at The Underground.

Police reports say a man asked Moffitt about selling drugs at the nightclub and Moffitt allegedly hit him in the head.

The 27-year-old Moffitt was released on his own recognizance. It’s not clear whether he has an attorney in the case.

The guard, who was most recently with the Denver Broncos, quit the NFL in November, saying he’d lost his love for the game and was tired of risking his health.
