MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Baltimore Ravens safety Matt Elam faces marijuana, oxycodone and reckless driving charges after being arrested in Miami Beach.
Miami-Dade County jail records show Elam was arrested Sunday. He was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver or sell and possession of a controlled substance, oxycodone. He was being held on $15,500 bail.
Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said details of his arrest were not immediately available.
The Ravens already announced they would not re-sign the 25-year-old Elam when his contract expires next month. They reiterated that in a statement Sunday.
“We are aware of the arrest of Matt Elam. Matt is not in our plans for the 2017 Ravens,” the statement read.
A first-round draft pick out of Florida in 2013, Elam has just one career interception. He played nine games last season, making one tackle.
No lawyer was listed on Elam’s jail records.
