PATTON VILLAGE, TX (MONTGOMERY COUNTY) – NFL player and former University of Houston student Ed Oliver was charged with DWI on Saturday night in Montgomery County, according to a report from KTRK.
The incident occurred around 9 p.m. between the Eastex Highway and FM 1485.
Oliver, a defensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills who was drafted in 2019, was reportedly swerving between lanes in a white Ford Super Duty hauling a trailer.
Officials performed a traffic stop and said that Oliver was impaired, but were not sure whether it was due to alcohol. Video evidence of the stop has been released showing Oliver performing a field sobriety test.
Police arrested Oliver on a misdemeanor charge of DWI.
A pistol also was found in the Ford, which led to Oliver receiving a misdemeanor unlawful carrying of a weapon charge.
A representative of the Buffalo Bills said that the organization was aware of the situation, but refused to comment, according to KTRK.
