The list of NFL players to get arrested since the NFL lockout began expanded on Sunday when Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Akeem Jordan got arrested in connection with an incident in Hairrsonburg, Va.

The incident reportedly occurred in the parking lot outside a restaurant on Sunday, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

Police spokeswomen Mary-Hope Vass said that the 25-year-old got into a "verbal altercation, which led to a physical disorderly incident."

Jordan was said to have turned himself in and was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery.

Dr. Lynn Lashbrook, Jordan's agent, said that his client has been "cooperating fully." He was released on Monday.

The Eagles organization is aware of the arrest and will not comment further.
