Former star West Virginia cornerback Daryl Worley, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles after being arrested early Sunday morning, faces DUI, weapons and disorderly conduct charges, according to a report by the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Les Bowen.
According to the report, Worley was arraigned and is out of jail after posting 10 percent of his $25,000 bail on Sunday evening. His case is set for a preliminary hearing on May 1.
Worley reportedly was found passed out in a car blocking the highway near the Eagles team facility on Sunday, and he was arrested after an incident with police that ultimately escalated into police tasing Worley. A gun was found at the scene.

The Eagles announced that they released Worley later Sunday. Worley was only with the team for a little more than a month. The Super Bowl champions acquired him in a trade with the Carolina Panthers in early March.
Worley was a first-team All-Big 12 selection for West Virginia in his junior season in 2015, and he skipped his senior season with the Mountaineers to turn pro. The Carolina Panthers took Worley in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and he started 25 games for the Panthers in his first two NFL seasons.
A Philadelphia native, Worley was traded back to his hometown Eagles for veteran wide receiver Torrey Smith, and he was expected to compete for a starting cornerback position.
