Police arrested Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquis Bundy on Saturday morning after he disobeyed a police officer while out at a nightclub in Scottsdale. 

Police said the wide receiver, who is 22 and in his second season with the Cardinals, was outside International (INTL) in Old Town Scottsdale when he was arrested Saturday at about 2:45 a.m.

Bundy was cited and released for disorderly conduct and failure to obey an officer. 

According to a Scottsdale police report, the incident began when an apparently intoxicated Bundy became agitated about his missing hat. The report says numerous off-duty MCSO deputies who were working at the bar told Bundy they had not seen his hat. Bundy then requested a business card from one of the deputies, who gave it to him. 

Bundy was free to leave but instead approached Scottsdale officers, demanding they rewrite the contact information that was on the card. Bundy's friends tried multiple times to get him to leave, even grabbing him several times, but Bundy continued to pull away from his friends and yell at the officers.

After being warned to leave or face arrest, his friends grabbed him once again in an effort to get him to leave, but he refused and was arrested.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Bundy is a Tempe native and played collegiately at New Mexico. He went unselected in the 2016 NFL Draft, but the Cardinals signed him as an undrafted free agent in June. He was promoted from the Cards' practice squad to the active roster in November.
