Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested for driving while impaired Saturday morning in Raleigh, N.C., according to multiple reports.
Raleigh police captain Tommy Klein told ESPN that Gordon was "appreciably impaired."
Gordon, 23, could face a one-year suspension from the NFL for a previous failed drug test. He was suspended two games last season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
Gordon's appeal hearing was set for later this month unless the league and the NFLPA agree on a reduced suspension before that, according to NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk.
Gordon pleaded not guilty to a speeding ticket in June. He was pulled over for driving 74 mph in a 60 mph zone on May 25 and fined $187. His passenger was cited for possessing less than 200 grams of marijuana.
Gordon made 87 catches last season with an NFL-high 1,676 yards. He also scored nine receiving touchdowns.
