Officers took out Tasers but didn’t use them.

Pettigrew was released Sunday afternoon after being booked on a criminal mischief charge in the Dallas County Jail.

This isn’t the first time Pettigrew has run into trouble, nor is it the first time he’s been arrested in Dallas. In 2017, roughly a year after he retired, he was arrested for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after he got into a fight at a bar.

Pettigrew played seven seasons in the NFL, all with the Lions, who selected him with the 20th pick of the 2009 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State.
