Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley is disappointed to learn that defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was arrested on drug charges in Alabama.

Whaley says the team will contact the NFL regarding the arrest and will offer Dareus support and assistance. Whaley provided no further details in the statement released by the Bills on Wednesday, a day after the player's arrest became public.

Police say, Dareus was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia after being stopped by an Alabama state trooper Monday night. Dareus spent less than an hour in jail before being released.

Dareus is from Alabama, and was selected by Buffalo with the third pick in the 2011 draft. His agent has not commented on the arrest.
