Back in 2014, according to Metro News, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault stemming from involvement with a nightclub altercation, ultimately getting a six-month suspended sentence.

A gun was also recovered from the vehicle. Worley had been a versatile starting defensive back for Carolina during his two National Football League seasons, but he won't get a chance to suit up for his hometown Eagles.

The news of the William Penn Charter School graduate's arrest was first reported by the NFL Network's Ian Rappaport, USA Today said.

Worley started 14 games for the Panthers last season and finished his second National Football League campaign with 63 tackles and a career-high two interceptions.
