Buffalo Bills Player Asks Cops to Shoot Him During Bizarre Incident

He did not appear at the Bills' minicamp practice held on Thursday, Buffalo News reports.

Bills offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was taken to the Erie County Medical Center for observation after a unusual interaction with police on Tuesday.

He was in a field "not fully clothed", after climbing an electric fence, and allegedly yelled "shoot me" at an Erie County Sheriff's deputy.

His auto wasn't involved in the accident. In his report, Carucci's source claims the Bills lineman told officers to "shoot him".

The complete circumstances are still a mystery, and out of respect for Kouandjio's public profile and the community guidelines, we would prefer that commenters restrain their speculation about the reasons for this incident until more information is known.

The Bills released a statement following the incident.

According to The Buffalo News, a police source says the cops were unaware they were approaching an National Football League player at the time, and only found out later when they found his abandoned vehicle. Kouandjio had abandoned his vehicle near the scene of a crash on a Buffalo-area highway.

Buffalo took Kouandjio in the second round of the 2014 draft. He's had seven starts in 24 games over the past two seasons.
