Former Ravens wide receiver Tandon Doss was arrested Wednesday in his hometown of Indianapolis for alleged disorderly conduct, according to the Indianapolis police department.
However, Doss -- who signed a two-year, $1.505 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguarsthis offseason after the Ravens didn't offer him a restricted free agent tender -- won't be charged with a crime.
According to a police incident report, the arresting officer said two men approached a patrol car and said the driver of a black Dodge was following them.
"Mr. Doss was very upset and started yelling at me," the arresting officer wrote in the report. "I ordered him to place the car in park and shut the engine off. He refused. Due to the traffic jam, there was no place for him to go. I again ordered him to turn off the engine.
"He refused and kept yelling into the phone. I told him to give me his license. He refused. I saw him drop his right hand to the center of the set. I ordered him to keep his hands where I could see them. He did not follow my orders. I removed from the vehicle and took him into custody."
The Ravens could have retained Doss, 24, with a $1.43 million restricted one-year tender, but opted not to do so. He caught a career-high 19 passes last season for 305 yards with a long reception of 63 yards.
He returned a punt 82 yards for a touchdown in a win over the Houston Texans.
Drafted in the fourth round out of Indiana in 2011, Doss never emerged as a regular starter. For his career, he has caught 26 career passes for 428 yards and one touchdown.
Doss was cut prior to the start of the 2013 regular season, missing the opening game of the season before being re-signed to a one-year, $555,000 contract.
Doss was originally signed to a four-year, $1.26 million rookie deal that included a $412,560 signing bonus.
