Former Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley is facing six criminal charges after police arrested him Sunday morning in South Philly, including those for driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs and carrying a firearm in public, according to court records.
The Eagles cut Worley on Sunday after confirming his arrest.
Police found Worley asleep in his car at the 1300 block of Pattison Street and an altercation ensued, according to NFL.com. Officers used a taser on Worley, who grew up in North Philadelphia, the site reported.
The Philadelphia Police Department responded to PennLive’s request for information to confirm Worley’s arrest and charge but did not provide more details.

Court records show authorities charged Worley with his first DUI offense, firearms not to be carried without a license, carrying firearms in public in Philadelphia, possession of an instrument of crime with intent to employ it, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct — engaging in fighting.
Worley left custody after posting 10 percent of a $25,000 bond Sunday night and has a preliminary hearing set for May 1, according to court records.
Fortunato Perri, Worley’s attorney, has not responded to calls from PennLive, but he spoke with ABC6 Action News on Sunday.
“He’s obviously very disappointed that he’s involved in this situation,” Perri said. “We’re going to look at it and hopefully resolve it favorably enough so that he can maintain his career.”
Court documents show police arrested Worley about a block from the Eagles’ practice facility, where the team will begin its offseason workout program Monday.
The Eagles acquired Worley though a trade with the Panthers last month in exchange for wide receiver Torrey Smith. Philadelphia did not absorb a financial penalty by cutting Worley and saved $670,000 against the salary cap.
