John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens’ upper office must be pulling out their last gray hairs. First it was Ray Rice. Then it was Deonte Thompson. And now, according to The Baltimore Sun on March 9, offensive lineman Jah Reid has been arrested for battery.

The arrest occurred early Sunday morning in Key West's Red Garter Saloon. Reportedly, Reid and another man got involved in an altercation with patrons and security which quickly escalated. The confrontation eased when one man, not Reid, was tased. Reid was released on a $2,000 bond.

The 6-foot-7, 340 pound Jah Reid was a third-round draft pick in 2011. He played as a backup guard last season. The upcoming season will be the last of his four-year, $2.6 million rookie contract.

Reid has spoken to head coach John Harbaugh and related his side of the story. The only response from the Baltimore Ravens, as of this writing, is that from Chad Steele in their public relations department. “We have learned of the situation and are gathering information.”

There has been no response from Red Garter Saloon management and Reid hasn’t returned messages. His agent, Derrick Fox, stated, "I'm aware of the incident. More information is being gathered. At this time, we'll have no further comment as this is a legal matter."
