Colts defensive back Mike Doss was arrested by police in Akron, Ohio after alledgedly firing a 40-caliber handgun several times into the air while standing near a crowd of approximately 500 people.

Doss was arrested early Sunday morning in downtown Akron and charged with carrying a concealed weapon -- a fourth-degree felony. He was also charged with misdemeanor counts of obstructing official business, discharging a weapon within the city, and inducing panic according to the police.

The problem occurred at approximately 2:20 a.m. in the 300-block of South Main Street, outside of the Harry Buffalo restaurant in Akron's nightclub district. With an estimated crowd of 500 people in the area, Doss alledgedly discharged his gun from about 300 feet away. There were no reports of anyone being injured as a result of the incident.

According to a report by the Akron Police Department, police patrolling nearby heard shots and upon arrival found five to six shell casings in the area and a gun in Doss' vehicle.

Doss was released from jail Sunday afternoon after posting $1,000 bail. He's scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.

According to a published report, two of his relatives were also arrested.
