Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested in Raleigh, N.C. on Friday evening for driving while impaired, according to a report by Matt Anderson of WKYC in Cleveland.

Gordon has not been averse to off-the-field issues so far in his short NFL career. Recently a July date was set for Gordon's appeal hearing, attempting to lessen the indefinite suspension that was handed down recently for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy for a third time.
Gordon was bonded out on Saturday afternoon, but an arrest on the Fourth of July is certainly not going to help his case at his hearing to reduce his suspension from the NFL.
Gordon originally entered the NFL in the supplemental draft after being suspended twice in college, reportedly for marijuana use, before eventually being dismissed from Baylor. Despite being suspended for two games in 2014, Gordon broke out last year, catching 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns and making the NFL's Pro Bowl.
