The 25-year-old Lefeged was traveling in a vehicle around 12:05 a.m. ET, with Aaron Timothy Wilson, 23, when police attempted to stop them. Following a chase, both men were arrested, Alali confirmed.
Lefeged and Wilson will face arraignment Saturday afternoon on charges that include carrying a firearm without a license, unregistered firearm, unregistered ammunition, presence of a firearm in a motor vehicle and possession of an open container of alcohol, Alali said.

The Colts signed Lefeged as an undrafted free agent in 2011. He’s scheduled to earn $555,000 this season in the final year of his contract.
Lefeged started four games in 2012, along with the team’s wild-card loss to the Baltimore Ravens. After the Colts signed free-agent strong safety LaRon Landry to pair with Antoine Bethea, Lefeged has been reduced to a supporting castmember, but you can’t have enough men in the secondary in today’s NFL.
