Lattimore, 24, was arrested by gang investigators, charged with carrying a concealed weapon and receiving stolen property, and booked into Cuyahoga County Jail, Cleveland.com reported. He was initially pulled over as a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for traffic violations, but police eventually found a loaded handgun in Lattimore’s possession that he allegedly did not own.
The Saints did not immediately comment on the situation, ESPN reported.
