Ed Oliver awaiting court date, still taking part in Bills' virtual offseason

Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver is awaiting a court date after being arrested over the weekend on charges of driving while intoxicated and unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Oliver, 22, was arrested Saturday night in his hometown of Houston. He was released after posting $1,350 bail.

An initial court date is expected to be assigned later this week, according to a spokesman at the Montgomery County Clerk's office.

While he awaits a court date, a league source told The Buffalo News that Oliver is still participating in the Bills' virtual offseason program. Oliver's participation was first reported by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

According to, Oliver was pulled over just before 9 p.m. CT on State Highway 242 after another driver called 911 to report a Ford Super Duty pickup pulling a trailer was driving dangerously in a 45 mph construction zone and was failing to stay in a lane.

In a statement released Sunday morning, the Bills said, "We are aware of the situation and we are gathering more information. We will have no further comment at this time."
