Cleveland Browns wide receiver Davone Bess is in the news again just one day after his infamous Twitter pic showcasing what appears to be marijuana and alcohol.

CBS Miami confirmed that Bess walked out of jail at 10:35 a.m. after being arrested at the Fort Lauderdale Airport in Florida at 6:15 a.m., Friday, January 17, for assaulting a firefighter/officer.

According to the arrest report, Bess was walking down the concourse acting "irrationally, dancing, singing with his pants repeatedly falling down."

The arrest report said Bess was asked by law enforcement if he was alright and gave no response.  The Broward Sheriff's Office said Bess then took a cup of coffee not belonging to him and then squeezed the cup until the liquid poured over the officers uniform.

The arresting officer said Bess then took a fighting stance and the officer hit the football player with his ASP in the leg, but it had no effect.

The officer said Bess then took off his shirt and again took up a fighting stance and refused repeated orders to get on the ground. Once back-up units arrived, Bess surrendered and was taken into custody.

The arrest report said Bess appeared to "be under the influence of an unknown narcotic due to his irrational behavior."

"He appeared to be looking through me when I was talking to him," the arresting officer wrote."

The NFL is aware of the picture, but NFL spokesman Greg Aiello declined to say what the league may do about it, according to CBSSports.com.

Last December, Bess posted a separate picture that showed him lighting up something on his desk.

Bess missed the last two games of the season last year after leaving the team for personal reasons. He had a league-high 14 drops last season and had more than 28 yards receiving in just three of 14 games played in 2013, according to CBSSports.com.

Bess began his career as a Miami Dolphin before being traded to the Browns before the current season.

He is expected to bond out of jail quickly.

The Cleveland Browns released the following statement in response to the arrest:

"The team is aware of the situation and currently working to gather more information."
