PHOENIX — Ricky Seals-Jones, a tight end with the Arizona Cardinals, was arrested over the weekend.

Seals-Jones was arrested in Scottsdale on July 14 for assault, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing, according to the Scottsdale Police Department.

A police report of the incident said Seals-Jones was arrested after he attempted to use the restroom inside the W Hotel in Scottsdale.

When hotel employees told him only guests were allowed inside at the time, Seals-Jones allegedly attempted to use the bathroom inside Sushi Roku, a restaurant inside the hotel, but was again denied entry.

An employee told police that Seals-Jones then became combative and allegedly pushed him. The employee said “one hand shoved him in the shoulder area.”

Seals-Jones told police that he had to go to the bathroom badly so he attempted to walk past the staff, but was taken to the ground when hotel staff pushed him.

The report said Seals-Jones appeared to be intoxicated at the time of the arrest.

The Cardinals said in a statement to ABC 15 that the team is aware of the incident but would not comment further due to the ongoing legal process.

The news of the arrest came the same day as Arizona Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim pleaded guilty to extreme DUI in connection to a July 4 arrest.

Keim was also suspended for five weeks and fined $200,000 following the guilty plea.

The team said the money will be donated to the Arizona chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
