Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was involved in a freakish incident with police not far from the scene of an accident Tuesday on Route 400 in Elma, The Buffalo News learned.

When the Bills hit their training facility for OTAs on Thursday, Kouandjio was absent.

Police did not detain the 6-foot-7, 322-pound Kouandjio, but the athlete allegedly shouted "Shoot me!" to a Sheriff's deputy who approached him. In his report, Carucci's source claims the Bills lineman told officers to "shoot him". When the player's vehicle was found abandoned, a search was conducted and Bills gear was discovered, according to the source. A check of the license showed the vehicle was registered to Kouandjio.

The complete circumstances are still a mystery, and out of respect for Kouandjio's public profile and the community guidelines, we would prefer that commenters restrain their speculation about the reasons for this incident until more information is known.

The report also added that Kouandjio pulled over when he saw flashing lights on the road, and then ran into the field.

Exactly what happened is unclear.

Kouandjio was not arrested following the incident but was taken to the hospital for observation.
