Not two days after tweeting that the Cincinnati Bengals have emphasized one of the more stable offseason stories this year, it quickly resolved with a teeth-shattering uppercut.

According to WCPO-TV, Bengals offensive tackle Andre Smith was arrested after "he allegedly brought a gun to an airport in Atlanta."

Atlanta police say they found a .380 caliber handgun on Smith when he tried to board a plane at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta Airport Thursday evening.

Smith, 25, of Birmingham, Alabama, appeared in court Friday morning and was issued a $3,000 bond.

Smith is entering the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
