MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – A former member of the Miami Dolphins was arrested on Miami Beach, Saturday, according to Miami Beach Police.

The Miami Beach Police Department said Tyrell Johnson was arrested for urinating in public.

Officers said they saw Johnson urinating near 9th Street and Ocean Court so they approached him to conduct a field interview.

When asked to place his hand on a wall, officers said Johnson refused and kept his hands in his pockets and even pulled away from them as they attempted to take him into custody.

In addition to being charged with urinating in public, Johnson was also charged with resisting arrest without violence.

Johnson is currently a NFL free agent after spending most of his career with the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions.
