Defensive back Bashaud Breeland was arrested at a South Carolina gas station Tuesday and video shows it wasn’t without incident.

In video obtained by TMZ Sports on Friday, a York County Sheriff’s Office deputy is seen arresting Breeland with his gun drawn. The officer said that Breeland became combative during the arrest.

<——- NOT A COP…I have a question for the po-po on the board. Couple things…

He has his taser out, so why is he so close to him…seems like a bad idea.

Once the officer is behind him and has hold of his one hand and the guy will not either get down or give him his other hand, why didn’t he just sweep his leg and take him down? I’ve seen it happen on other videos, granted in the videos the situation was just starting to get out of control and the officer “took” control.

If the officer didn’t want him to get back in the vehicle, what didn’t he just kick the door closed him the dude opened it?

Again I’m not an officer, it’s just looking at the video I would have done things different and actually looking back this officer probably would also.

The NFL player and several other men were seen smoking marijuana at a gas station in Fort Mill, according to an arrest report obtained by CNN. When a deputy with the York County Sheriff's office approached the men, they attempted to leave the scene, according to the report.

The deputy called all three men back -- including Breeland -- and said they were being detained for attempting to flee, the report said.

The deputy said Breeland then got out of his vehicle to speak with him, and he saw one of the suspects throw a blunt back into Breeland's vehicle. The deputy also smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from Breeland's car, the report stated.


While attempting to place handcuffs on Breeland, he "pulled away and resisted" several times, the report stated, which led to the deputy pulling out his Taser and firearm.

As other units arrived on the scene, the deputy handcuffed Breeland.

Upon searching Breeland's vehicle, deputies located a large marijuana blunt that weighed approximately 1.3 grams, as well as 3.2 grams of marijuana, located in the driver side door, according to the report.
Deputies also found several messages in Breeland's phone regarding drug transactions, the report stated. But Breeland told the deputy "those deals were not around York County" and explained that he liked to smoke and was a marijuana enthusiast, it said.
Breeland was transported to the York County Jail without further incident.

Breeland has been charged with resisting arrest, marijuana possession, driving without a license, having an open container of beer or wine in a car and transporting alcohol with a broken seal.


In a statement, Breeland's attorneys questioned why the level of force exhibited by the responding deputy was necessary.

Officer showed restraint.
Gave the guy plenty of chances.
Probably didn't want to escalate either as the public and/or city would turn on him in a heartbeat.
I’m not a cop, but I’m thinking this officer is going to get his wrist slapped. Not subduing the perp quickly could have allowed things to spin out of control, with nasty results.

Marijuana enthusiast. That’s a new one.

His attorney is right to question the level of force. It should have been much greater. I don’t mean the guy had to be knocked unconscious, but necessary is necessary.

Impossible, I've read here many times that weed chills you out and makes you avoid conflict and violence.

It's the drug of peace.
