The Green Bay Packers have no plans to release tight end Andrew Quarless after he was arrested last weekend in Miami
Quarless fired two rounds from a .45 caliber weapon after an argument with a group of women outside of a South Beach parking garage early Saturday morning, according a police report obtained from the Miami New Times.
Quarless then parked a vehicle and hid from authorities outside of a local bar while trying to hide the weapon inside a potted plant. Police later found the weapon, matching rounds found on the ground near the parking garage with the gun.
The weapon used in the incident was legally registered to Quarless, who now faces a misdemeanor charge of discharging a firearm in public. Quarless was arrested and later released from custody.
The 26-year-old was the team's fifth-round pick in the 2010 NFL draft. He caught 29 passes for a career-high 323 yards and three touchdowns last season for Green Bay.
Quarless signed a two-year, $3 million contract last season and is scheduled to make $1.3 million in base salary in 2015.
