Another week, another arrest for the Ravens.

Reserve offensive lineman Jah Reid became the third Ravens player to run afoul of the law in the past month as he was arrested early Sunday morning in Key West, Fla., and charged with misdemeanor battery, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

According to the police report, Reid and another man began scuffling at the Red Garter Saloon. Reid knocked the man to the ground, and when security intervened Reid got into a confrontation with security, according to police.

He was charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery at 3:14 a.m.

Reid is the third Ravens player arrested this offseason. Running back Ray Rice was arrested on assault charges after an altercation with his fiancee at a New Jersey casino on Feb. 15, and reserve wide receiver Deonte Thompson was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana in Florida a week later.

Reid, 25, was a third-round draft pick by the Ravens out of Central Florida in 2011. Reid, listed as a guard and tackle, started seven games at left guard in 2012. He played as a reserve in 10 games this past season and is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
