First Johnny, now Armonty.

Cleveland Browns linebacker Armonty Bryant has been indicted on felony drug charges, according to WEWS-TV and ESPN.com.

According to the reports, the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas indicted the 25 year old on Tuesday for two counts of felony drug possession on.

Bryant and former Browns defensive back De'Ante Saunders were stopped at 2:15 a.m. on Christmas morning by the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Saunders, with Bryant in the car as a passenger, was driving 75 miles per hour in a 60 mph zone on I-71 southbound in Brook Park. Officers found three pills (two OxyCodones and one Adderall), marijuana, a Glock handgun, and a .22 magazine in the car.

Saunders, released by the Browns in December after the incident, was indicted Tuesday for a felony of improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle.

An arraignment has been scheduled for Bryant and Saunders on February 24 in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas.

The Browns forced Bryant to sit out the final two games of the season after his arrest. In addition, the Miami, Florida native could faced discipline from the NFL for violations of the league's personal conduct and substance abuse policies.

Not a great offseason thus far for the Browns.
