New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl cornerback Marshon Lattimore was arrested Thursday night in his hometown of Cleveland, according to a report from cleveland.com.
Lattimore, 24, was arrested by Cleveland gang investigators around 10:30 p.m. on suspicion of receiving stolen property, according to the report. While he has not been formally charged, jail records show that Lattimore was booked into the Cuyahoga County Jail.
Details of his arrest have not been made public. Follow-up calls to the Cuyahoga County Jail went unanswered.
There are some conditions that must be met for receiving stolen property to be formally considered a crime. Ohio’s code of law states that “no person shall receive, retain, or dispose of the property of another person who knows or has reasonable grounds to believe that the property was obtained through the commission of a crime of theft.”
If the value of the stolen property was less than $ 1,000, it is considered a misdemeanor. Anything valued at more than $ 1,000 is considered a felony of varying degrees, depending on the value or type of property stolen.
Lattimore performed at Glenville High School in Cleveland before attending Ohio State. The Saints selected him 11th overall in the 2017 draft, and he became the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.
In four professional seasons, Lattimore has made the Pro Bowl three times. He has intercepted 10 passes and defended 55 in 57 career games.
The Saints exercised the fifth-year option on his rookie contract last spring, which means Lattimore is entering the final year of his initial contract with the Saints this season.
He’s set to make $ 10.24 million in 2021, and the Saints have suggested they’d like to sign him for a long-term extension.
