Former New York Giants safety Tyler Sash was arrested last Saturday morning in Iowa after he was tased by police during a drunken scooter chase, according to an ESPN report on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old played two seasons with the Giants and won a Super Bowl with the team in 2012 before he was cut last summer. Sash was arraigned on charges of public intoxication and interference with official acts by police in the small town of Oskaloosa.

SI WIRE: Report: NFL to change drug policy regarding marijuana use

Police had approached him at approximately 1:30 a.m. on Saturday after he was seen driving the scooter with his lights off. He refused to stop and a chase ensued for four blocks until he fled on foot. He was found behind a tree and was tased after refusing to come out from behind the tree.

He declined a field sobriety test but admitted to drinking before being taken to Mahaska County jail.

The former Iowa Hawkeye appeared in 23 games for the Giants after New York selected him in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL draft. He was suspended by the league the following year for a violation of the NFL's performance-enhancing substance policy.
