The Oregonian also reports that Lyerla "is suspected of being high on either illegal drugs or prescription medications when he was pulled over."
Lyerla was arrested in Washington County. He grew up in Hillsboro, Oregon, which is in Washington County.
Lyerla played college football for the Oregon Ducks, but left the team last October and later declared for the NFL draft. He was arrested for possession of cocaine three weeks after withdrawing from school.
In a profile published last week by SB Nation, Lyerla claimed an Oregon booster promised him a house and a car if he committed to play for the Ducks.
