In this Nov. 18, 2012, file photo, Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged watches from the sidelines during the second quarter of an NFL football game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. Police say Lefeged has been arrested on gun-related charges after a traffic stop in Washington, D.C., early Saturday morning, June 29, 2013.

Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged was arrested early Saturday morning on gun-related charges after fleeing police during a traffic stop in Washington, D.C., according to authorities.

Lefeged, 25, and another passenger face multiple charges, including carrying a handgun without a license and possession of an unregistered firearm and ammunition.

Investigators say Lefeged was a passenger in a car that raced away from police after it was stopped for speeding. Court records reveal police smelled marijuana in the car and found a container of alcohol. Police say they found a semi-automatic pistol underneath the front passenger seat that's believed to belong to Lefeged.

The star football player was raised and attended high school in Germantown, Md. He's entering his third season in the NFL.

A team spokesperson said the Colts organization has no comment on the arrest at this time. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
