TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Former Alabama and NFL receiver Ardarius Stewart has been arrested and charged with carrying a pistol without a license.

Tuscaloosa police say the 25-year-old Stewart was pulled over about 1:40 a.m. Thursday for driving with an expired tag. Passenger Demarcus Marshall was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana first degree.

Stewart was a third-round pick by the New York Jets in 2017. He was waived after serving a two-game suspension to start last season for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancers.

Stewart caught six passes for 82 yards as a rookie. He was signed to Washington’s practice squad in December and waived days later.

Stewart had 117 catches for 1,564 yards and 12 touchdowns his final two seasons with Alabama. He skipped his senior season to enter the draft.
