Bucs safety Cody Grimm arrested in Virginia

Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Cody Grimm was arrested in Virginia on Sunday.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers reserve safety Cody Grimm was arrested early Sunday morning in Leesburg, Va., and charged with public intoxication, according to the Washington Post.
The report said Grimm, 26, a native of Fairfax, Va., returned to the region for a wedding and was arrested at a Hampton Inn at 5:30 a.m. According to the report, court records show he is scheduled for a July 9 hearing.

“Our players know our expectations on and off the field and we take these matters very seriously,” Bucs coach Greg Schiano said in a statement. “When we feel we have obtained all the necessary information, we will act accordingly.”

Grimm was charged with a misdemeanor, but he could face additional punishment because of an earlier public intoxication arrest on March 10 in Christiansburg, Va. He agreed to a $500,000 pay cut in April to preserve his roster spot.
Grimm was Tampa Bay’s seventh-round pick in 2010. He has 73 tackles and two interceptions in 23 career games.
