Linebacker Akeem Jordan, who played for the Eagles last season but will be a free agent once the lockout ends, is the latest NFL player to make the police blotter.

Jordan was arrested in Harrisonburg, Va., early Sunday and charged with misdemeanor assault and battery in an incident with an unidentified person, according to the Harrisonburg Police Department.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that the incident occurred in the parking lot of the Firetap Bar and Grill on Evelyn Byrd Avenue at 2 a.m.

"They got into a verbal altercation, which led to a physical disorderly incident," police spokeswomen Mary-Hope Vass said, according to the Daily News. "The incident was reported to us on Sunday afternoon. The victim went to the magistrate and obtained the warrant. Jordan turned himself in Sunday without any issues."

Jordan, 25, is a Harrisonburg native. He was released on his own recognizance Monday.

"It's always unfortunate when these things happen," said Dr. Lynn Lashbrook, Jordan's agent. "Circumstances happen, but I'm confident it will be figured out. He is cooperating fully. Getting into the details doesn't help anybody; it impedes the process. I stand behind the kid 100 percent. He's a first-class kid, but you always wish these things never happen. He's got a great track record as a citizen."

Injuries to the victim were described as "nothing life-threatening." The Eagles had no comment on the matter.

Meanwhile, we have another name to add to the offseason wall of shame. And even though Ray Lewis' theories on criminal behavior have been debunked, the arrests continue. Weird.
