(WKBW) - The Buffalo Bills now have one of the most bizarre stories you'll read from the NFL offseason on their hands.
It involves offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, who was taken to Erie County Medical Center for observation following an incident with police. Kouandjio had a run-in with police Tuesday on Route 400, and according to the Erie County Sheriff's Office, the player ran into a field just off the road before being approached by police.
According to Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News, there were some other details about the incident the Sheriff's Office didn't confirm:
"According to a police source, Kouandjio was found, not fully clothed, in a field after climbing over an electric fence. When an Erie County Sheriff's deputy went to detain him, the source said, the 6-foot-7, 322-pound Kouandjio yelled, "Shoot me!""
The Sheriff's Office told 7ABC that they have no record of Kouandjio yelling "Shoot me!" They also said that it was not in the police report, and disputed those details of the story.
The report also added that Kouandjio pulled over when he saw flashing lights on the road, and then ran into the field. The offensive lineman was not arrested.
