CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Browns running back, Christopher Jennings was arrested Friday evening on West 6th Street.  He's accused of assaulting a bouncer at a nightclub.

According to the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department, around 1:45AM Jennings and a friend attempted to enter the Velvet Dog on West 6th Street in the Warehouse District.

The bouncer advised them that the friend was not in proper attire.

"We try to maintain a dress code to have a more upscale crowd. It tends to eliminate some problems," said Tom Culkar, Velvet Dog owner.

Jennings said they were just going to meet some friends inside and still attempted to enter and the bouncer again advised them they were not allowed in.

Jennings proceeded and the bouncer stopped him.

The Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Departments says at that time Jennings hit the bouncer in the mouth.  A Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Deputy was driving past and noticed an altercation.

He stopped and talked to the bouncer about what had happened and observed blood on the mouth of the bouncer.

Jennings was arrested.

The incident is under investigation and at this time there are no charges.

According to the team's website, 24 year old Jennings played in nine games with one start and rushed for 220 yards and a touchdown on 63 attempts and caught nine passes for 56 yards.
