Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Evgeny Medvedev was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence in Montgomery County early Wednesday, police said.

Lower Moreland Police Chief Pete Hasson tells NBC10 Medvedev was stopped for a traffic violation around 2:45 a.m. along Byberry Road in Lower Moreland.

The officer then arrested the 33-year-old Russian national for suspicion of driving under the influence, Hasson said.

Charges have not been filed in the case. Hanson said police are awaiting toxicology results. Medvedev has since been released from police custody.

Medvedev signed a one-year contract with the Flyers last May.

NBC10 has reached out to the team for comment.
