Police arrested former Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Duane Brown and accused him of carrying a gun in his luggage at Los Angeles International Airport, officials said Saturday.

The incident unfolded at about 2 p.m. PT when Brown, "departing from Terminal 6 was discovered at the screening station possessing a concealed firearm," airport police Lt. Karla Rodriguez said in a statement.

Brown, 36, was released after he posted $10,000 bail and was ordered to appear in court Aug. 3, jail records showed.

Brown's agent did not immediately respond to phone calls and emails Sunday seeking comment on his behalf.

Brown, at 6-foot-5 and 315 pounds, has been one of the game's better offensive linemen for more than a decade after having broken in with the Houston Texans in 2008 before he was traded to Seattle in 2017.

Brown's contract ended after last season. The Seahawks, at least before his arrest, had said they were open to re-signing him.

Brown, who has been one of the team’s most durable players, has been named to five Pro Bowls. He started in all 33 of his team's games the last two seasons and played in 98% of Seattle's offensive snaps in that time.
