Baltimore Ravens rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro was arrested Saturday morning and charged with misdemeanor counts of destruction of property and public drunkenness, reports the Virginia Gazette.

Taliaferro is the fourth Baltimore player to be arrested this offseason, following running back Ray Rice, reserve offensive lineman Jah Reid and reserve wide receiver Deonte Thompson.

The Virginia Gazette detailed the incident:

According to Maj. Greg Riley of the Williamsburg Police Department, officer J.A. Wagner was on patrol in the 400 block of Richmond Road about 1:15 a.m. and saw the incident take place.

Wagner observed a group near the College Delly get into a cab. The taxi lurched forward, then the group got out. The officer said he heard yelling and cursing among the group.

The cab driver motioned to Wagner, and told that a member of the group whom he identified as Taliaferro, gripped the window and broke it.

According to police Taliaferro left the scene, but was located about a block away. He was charged with being drunk in public and destruction of property, both misdemeanors.

Taliaferro was drafted in the fourth round of last month's draft after rushing for 1,729 yards and 27 touchdowns during his senior campaign at Coastal Carolina.
