(CLICKORLANDO) — Police arrested Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged early Saturday after allegedly finding his semiautomatic pistol poking out from under the passenger seat of the white Camaro he’d been in, police said.

The Chevrolet sports car got police’s attention shortly after midnight because it was being driven erratically, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Araz Alali told CNN. According to charging papers filed in D.C. Superior Court, police spotted one of its passengers standing up in the backseat of the convertible.

On the street, plainclothes officers repeatedly asked the Camaro’s driver to put the car in the park. Instead, according to the charging papers, he put his foot on the gas and sped away.
