Cincinnati Bengals fullback Orson Charles was arrested in Madison County, Ky., late Monday and charged with wanton endangerment-first degree, according to the jail.
Charles allegedly pulled a gun during a road rage incident.
Wanton endangerment in the first degree in Kentucky is defined as when, under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life, someone engages in conduct which creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another. It is a class D felony.
Charles, 23, will be entering his third year with the Bengals. He's played 31 games in his career with eight starts. The former Georgia tight end was drafted in the fourth round in 2012 but moved to fullback last season when the Bengals drafted tight end Tyler Eifert in the first round.
Prior to being selected out of Georgia, Charles was arrested for a DUI in Athens, Ga., one month before the 2012 draft.
