TMZ reported that Hardy was arrested Sunday at an apartment complex. He refused to cooperate with police and attacked the officers. He hurt three police officers before they used a taser gun on him.
Only it didn't work. More officers had to get him under control before he was arrested on obstruction of justice. He was believed to have been under the influence at the time and was evaluated at the hospital.
He also showed a more aggressive nature then than he did in his brief NFL career. The 28-year-old Hardy was the Bills' second-round draft choice in 2008. He was pegged to be Buffalo's No. 2 wide receiver behind Lee Evans and came highly touted out of the University of Indiana.
But he completely flopped. He caught only nine passes for 87 yards in his rookie season, during which he started nine of his 14 appearances. He caught one ball in two games in 2009 before the Bills cut him, in part because of lingering leg injuries that curtailed his development. He missed the 2010 season and signed with the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 but never again saw the field. He moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting and modeling career.
