Tampa Bay Buccaneers returner Jaydon Mickens was reportedly charged with two misdemeanors after a gun arrest in March, according to TMZ.

Mickens was arrested March 5 after police found a gun in his car. He was initially pulled over due to the tint on his windows being too dark. Officers performed a search and reportedly found a loaded firearm.

Mickens posted $35,000 bond and was due to appear in court July 8. 

The two gun charges could result in Mickens receiving a maximum of a year in prison, according to TMZ.
