Cleveland Browns' wide receiver Davone Bess has been arrested at an airport in Miami and charged with assaulting a law enforcement officer. 

Broward Sheriff's Office records show Bess, 28, was arrested early Friday after acting erratically and confronting an officer at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport.

Bess was charged with simple assault on an officer, resisting arrest without violence and disorderly conduct. He was released for $100 bail at 10:35 a.m. Eastern Time. 

The Browns said they are "aware of the situation and currently working to gather more information."

Bess was "acting irrationally, dancing, singing with his pants repeatedly falling down," a sherrif's report stated.

At one point, Bess grabbed a cup of coffee that was not his and squeezed it, spraying coffee on the officer. Bess then took a "fighting stance" and the officer hit him on the leg with a baton. The report says Bess removed his shirt and stayed in the stance. He dropped to the ground when more officers arrived.

Bess is no stranger to trouble. Just yesterday he posted a picture to twitter that appears to contain a bag of cannabis.
