Colts safety Lefeged due in DC court on gun charge

WASHINGTON – Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged is due in a Washington, D.C., court on a gun possession charge.

Lefeged was arrested early Saturday after police found a semi-automatic pistol in the car he was riding in. Police say they also smelled marijuana in the car and found a bottle containing vodka.

The car had been pulled over for speeding but then sped away. Police say Lefeged and another passenger were caught after they tried to run from officers.
