SAN DIEGO (April 21, 2006) -- Linebacker Steve Foley of the San Diego Chargers was arrested on charges of resisting arrest after police said he scuffled with officers.

Foley also was booked on charges of battery on a police officer and public drunkenness.

One of three officers involved in the struggle with the 6-foot-4, 265 pound linebacker suffered minor injuries, said police spokesman Gary Hassen.

Police were called early in the morning on a report of an SUV, which turned out to be Foley's, parked the wrong way outside a hotel. They found that its Arkansas plates had expired a year earlier and one officer smelled alcohol on Foley's breath, Hassen said.
