TMZ obtains video of Bills DT Adolphus Washington's arrest

TMZ Sports has obtained an intense video of Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Adolphus Washington being arrested Sunday night by police outside of a waterpark in Sharonville, Ohio.

The video, which is 2:31 in length, begins with police approaching Washington as he's inside his "slingshot," which is a three-wheeled motorcycle. Police scream at Washington not to move, before ordering to slowly remove his seat belt, get out of the vehicle and then lay on the ground. Washington can be heard telling officers "I don't want to move," as he holds his hands above his head.

The video then shows Washington in the back of a police car, when a man's voice – presumably that of an officer – tells him "you don't know how lucky you are, man. That was close buddy. Very close.

"Why in the hell would you have that gun in your hand with a cop standing right in front of you? What would you be thinking? I saw you reach for it. I knew something was up."

Washington then denies he was reaching for the gun, and said he was putting it away.

"Ninety-one percent of the time, what would have happened tonight?" the voice off camera asks Washington.

"I would have got shot. I know it. I understand," he answers.

"Dude, I'm not trying to shoot somebody out here," the voice off camera says, to which Washington responds: "I'm not trying to get shot."

The full video can be seen at this link – but be warned, it contains graphic language.

Washington was charged with improperly carrying a concealed firearm.

The Bills issued the following statement Monday night: "We are aware of the incident regarding Adophus Washington and have been in contact with him. Since it is a pending legal matter, we will have no further comment."
