Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger is under investigation for allegedly stealing his own truck off a dealership lot without paying for customization work, as first reported by TMZ. The dealership, Espi Motors in Houston, filed the police report alleging that it did $20,000 worth of work, which included including a matte black paint job with a batman logo, speakers, new wheels, a custom grill and a train horn, according to TMZ.

Espi Motors reportedly tried to track down Swearinger after the safety took off, but were unsuccessful. They filed the police report afterwards.

Swearinger started 12 games in 2014 -- his second season in the NFL out of South Carolina. He had two interceptions and a sack to go with 52 tackles. He is entering the third year of a four-year rookie contract worth nearly $3.5 million after being selected in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

There is no word yet from Swearinger or the Texans. SB Nation was unable to reach Swearinger's agent or Espi Motors' attorney for comment.
