The post-football life of former Baltimore Ravens pass rushing great Terrell Suggs, who had some trouble with the law during his pro career, took yet another bumpy detour, as the former All-Pro pass rusher found himself in some legal trouble once again.

Suggs was arrested and booked in Maricopa County, which is in his native Arizona. Suggs, who was a high school star at Hamilton High School in nearby Chandler before starting his college career at Arizona State, was charged with one count of offense against public order and one count of assault. Suggs has since been released from jail, according to a spokesperson for the jail through TMZ.

UPDATE: Suggs was arrested after brandishing a gun and threatening to kill a man at a Starbucks drive-through. Suggs allegedly backed his Range Rover into another car after driving past the ordering kiosk. Both drivers left their vehicles and argued, with Suggs eventually flipping off the other man before driving away.

After the other man swore at him, Suggs allegedly then said, "I'll kill your b---- a--" and showed him a black handgun. The gun was never pointed at the man, per court documents.

Suggs, who was picked 10th overall by the Ravens in the 2003 NFL Draft, finished his pro career with 139 sacks, seven Pro Bowl nods, and a Defensive Player of the Year award in the 2011 season. The Ring of Honor inductee won two championships in his career, one of which came with the Ravens in 2012 and the other coming as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs before retiring.

Suggs had previously been arrested in 2003 and charged with felony aggravated assault after a man was allegedly struck with a piece of rebar during an argument at a basketball tournament. Suggs was later acquitted of the charges in 2005.

Suggs had a temporary protective order issued against him by his ex-wife, Candace Williams, in 2012, which required Suggs to surrender seven firearms he owned. The order was later dismissed by a judge in December and the couple were married that same month.

Suggs was also arrested in 2016 in Scottsdale for leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a suspended license. These charges were also dismissed.

More details will be added as they become available. Regardless of what else happens, this is not a good look for Suggs.
