Baltimore Ravens safety Matt Elam was arrested on multiple drug charges early Sunday morning, according to court and corrections records.

Elam was booked on three felony charges at 3:45 a.m. ET: marijuana possession of more than 20 grams, possession of marijuana with the intent to sell and possession of a controlled substance. The list of charges, according to the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department, also includes one count of reckless driving.

He remained in custody Sunday morning with a bail amount listed at $15,500. There was no information available on his first scheduled court appearance.

“We have just been made aware of this and are looking into the situation,” Ravens spokesperson Chad Steele said in an email to USA TODAY Sports. “Matt Elam is not in our plans.”

Pro Football Talk was the first to report Elam’s arrest.

Messages left with the Miami-Dade police by USA TODAY Sports on Sunday were not immediately returned.

Elam, the Ravens’ first-round pick in 2013, was suspended for one game without pay in 2015 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He was on injured reserve at the time.

Elam is set to be a free agent next month after the Ravens decided to not pick up his option.
