Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was arrested in Scottsdale, Ariz. early Friday for leaving the scene of an accident and for driving on a suspended license.

Suggs was involved in a single-car traffic accident and a witness called Scottsdale police to the scene at 1:20 a.m. Upon arrival, they found a trail of fluid leading from a grocery store parking lot to Suggs' white BMW 750Li, which police say had "fresh damage." 

Suggs told police that he fell asleep behind the wheel. Police determined that he wasn't impaired at the time of the accident. He was arrested just after 2 a.m. and was later released. 

His publicist, Denise White, released the following statement:

"This morning Terrell Suggs was in a single car collision, no one was injured. Police were called and upon speaking with Terrell found his license to be suspended for speeding tickets. He was detained by the police and released a couple hours later. Terrell will let the judicial system take its course and fix his license issues."

He responded to the incident on his Twitter page.


Suggs played college football at Arizona State University. 

The story was first reported by TMZ Sports.
