Well, this isn't the kind of news you were probably hoping for as we head into 2016 NFL Free Agency.

Los Angeles Rams backup running back Tre Mason was arrested yesterday on multiple charges per WPLG, Mimami/Ft. Lauderdale's ABC affiliate:

The 22-year-old, who has a home in Delray Beach, was arrested in front of Diplomat Landing, at 3200 South Ocean Dr., in Hollywood.

Records from the Broward Clerk of Courts indicate that Mason has been charged with resisting arrest, possession of cannabis, reckless driving and failure to register a motor vehicle.

Mason was taken to the hospital following his arrest.

There aren't any other details yet available from original reporting, but we'll update this story as more info is made available. There's fair reason to expect a suspension will be upcoming though.

After being selected in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft with the 75th overall pick out of Auburn, Mason had a successful rookie season in 2014 topping 750 yards in just nine starts averaging more than 4.25 per rush.

The Rams, though, selected Todd Gurley with the 10th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft relegating Mason to secondhand status as Mason picked up just 75 rushes over 13 games with a trio of starts.

It's the second major incident involving the Rams in the last few months as late last November, Mason's teammate, WR Stedman Baileywas shot in Miami while on suspension.
