COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Kiante Tripp is in a Georgia jail on a burglary charge.
College Park police said Tripp was arrested with two others Sunday at an apartment in that Atlanta suburb.
The arrest resulted from neighbors calling police to say that armed men were in the apartment. Officers arrived, heard the men through the locked front door, and then caught them fleeing through the back. Police say nothing was stolen.
Tripp was being held in the Fulton County jail.
The 24-year-old attended the University of Georgia. He was on the Browns' active roster for three games last season.
Browns general manager Tom Heckert said he was aware of what happened and had no further comment.
