Yes, Ravens backup running back Bernard Pierce, entering the final year of his rookie contract, was arrested for suspicion of DUI. Ravens coach John Harbaugh told his team that off-field behavior that landed players in the headlines would not be tolerated this offseason.

Reserve cornerback Victor Hampton has already been waived for a driving under the influence arrest. This marks the second Ravens player to be arrested this offseason. The Ravens had five arrested last offseason.

Pierce totaled 93 carries for 366 yards and two touchdowns in 2014.
