According to CBS Miami, former Wolf Pack player and now Miami Dolphins defensive back Jonathon Amaya was arrested Monday morning for allegedly choking a taxi driver.

CBS Miami says Miami Beach Police told them Amaya got into the cab and asked the driver to take him somewhere. The driver replied that he didn't take people that far but then Amaya gave him an extra $100 for the trip so he agreed.

As the driver started heading that way, he claims Amaya got aggressive. That's when the driver reportedly took Amaya back to the original spot, gave him his money back and asked him to get out of the cab.

The cab driver says that's when Amaya "leaned forward and wrapped his hands around his neck and started choking him," but Miami Beach Police say the driver didn't have any injuries.

Amaya is in his third season with the Dolphins.
