Embattled running back Tre Mason of the Los Angeles Rams was arrested as a result of an ATV incident that occurred in July, the Palm Beach Post reported.
Mason, who remains on the Rams' roster after a season during which he did not report, was taken into custody on Tuesday after a warrant for his arrest was issued in December.
Officers in Palm Beach County attempted to speak to Mason on July 27 when they saw him spinning the tires of an ATV at a public park. Mason drove off and police followed him to a home in Lake Worth, Fla., where the 23-year-old locked himself in and was eventually convinced by family members to speak to the officers.
Mason had been charged with fleeing and eluding without regard for the safety of others and was released on $5,000 bond.
Police responded to the same house four days earlier after Mason's mother called and said her son was making irrational statements and exhibiting unusual behavior.
According to the police report in that incident, Mason told officers that "he was going to call the White House and we were all going to lose our jobs," and that "the police were responsible for teaching al-Qaida how to fly planes."
Police observed a hole had been punched in the wall of Mason's bedroom and saw a broken vase and lamp, and determined that Mason wasn't fit "to make decisions" for himself at the time.
Mason was taken to the hospital for a small laceration on his hand as well as observation.
According to reports, the recent ATV incident marks the sixth time since Mason was arrested during a traffic stop on March 5 that authorities have been to the Lake Worth home.
In the March 5 incident, police said they twice had to use a stun gun to subdue Mason. He was charged with four misdemeanors -- resisting arrest, reckless driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and possession of marijuana.
Mason rushed for 765 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie for the then-St. Louis Rams in 2014. But the team drafted standout Todd Gurley in the first round of the following draft and Mason had only 207 yards and a sub-par 2.8 average per carry in 2015.
The Rams have had no communication with Mason since they moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles.
The Rams placed Mason on the reserve/did not report list when he didn't show up for training camp late in July.
