New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was arrested in a bizarre incident after allegedly experiencing a medical episode. The team believes he may have suffered a seizure; he was arrested and reportedly resisted after police received a call about someone wandering in the streets and exhibiting odd behavior.

According to TMZ, he was arrested for "suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance and resisting, delaying and obstructing a police officer." 

The Saints released the following statement: 

"New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham experienced a medical episode last evening, which resulted in him becoming disoriented. He was taken into custody by local authorities and transported to a local hospital for evaluation for what Dr. John Amoss believes to be a likely seizure and spent the night under medical supervision and testing. Amoss met Graham at the hospital and is overseeing his care at this time. He was released this morning and is with the team as they continue preparations for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers."

After a short stay in the hospital, he's been released and is back with the team now.
