The Eagles confirmed his arrest, saying in a statement that they were "gathering more information". The source tells Action News a call came in for a auto blocking a highway in South Philadelphia.

Rapoport added that Worley was "found passed out inside a vehicle blocking a highway" and "a gun was recovered at the scene".

The source tells Action News that Worley became combative and officers used a Taser.

Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley was tased and arrested early Sunday morning near the team's South Philly practice facility.

Worley, 23, starred at Penn Charter High and at the University of West Virginia before being drafted in the third round by the Carolina Panthers in 2016. He is the second player the Eagles acquired this offseason who now has legal issues, after Michael Bennett turned himself in to police to face "injury to the elderly" charges that allegedly occurred during the Patriots-Falcons Super Bowl in February of 2017.

In college, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault over an incident involving a woman at a night club. Worley played in 16 games and started 11 as a rookie, recording one interception and nine passes defensed.

The Eagles are scheduled to begin the voluntary portion of their offseason workout program Monday.
