Linebacker Alex Okafor, who led the Cardinals with eight sacks this past season, was arrested in Austin, Texas, early Monday morning for evading arrest after a disturbance. There are not a lot of details about the situation at this point, but for whatever reason, Okafor took off on foot when police tried to question him. Okafor also had a warrant out for a previous misdemeanor violation.
Okafor came into his own this season after an injury-marred rookie year in 2013. He also started 2014 banged up after hurting his quadriceps in the preseason, making him a non-factor the first four games. But he rallied to play well the rest of the season.
