CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Armonty Bryant has been indicted on felony drug charges.

It happened on Christmas Day. The Cleveland Browns linebacker found himself in the back of a State Trooper’s cruiser moments before he was arrested. 

Investigators found Addrerall and Oxycodone in the car that they now have tied to Bryant. 

A Trooper asked Bryant, “Do you have a prescription for this?”

Bryant asked, “Adderall?” 

The trooper responded, “Ya.”

Bryant said, “I'm working on it.”

Bryant called one of his buddy's in the back of the cruiser on his Apple Watch during his arrest.

"They are going to hear about it but you think it's going to be on the news,” said Bryant on the phone.

Former Cleveland Browns Defensive Back De'Ante Saunders was also in handcuffs after Troopers arrested him OVI and speeding. He was driving the car Bryant was riding in. They were pulled over on I-71 Southbound in Brook Park. Saunders was going 75 mph in a 60 mph zone. 

Saunders has already plead not guilty to OVI and speeding. He was indicted for having a loaded gun in his car which he didn't have a permit to own.

The Browns reacted quickly when this first happened. Saunders was let go from the practice squad and Bryant didn't play in the last two games.
