Former Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy was arrested for possession of a controlled substance on Friday, police confirmed to NBC Dallas-Fort Worth.

Hardy is currently at Richardson City Jail, with bond set at $5,000, the station reports. According to TMZ, he was in possession of less than a gram of cocaine.

The 28-year-old spent the first five seasons of his career with the Carolina Panthers, making the Pro Bowl in 2013, before signing with Dallas in 2015.

He was found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend in 2014 and threatening to kill her, but she failed to appear in court so the charges were dropped.
