AKRON, Ohio -- Indianapolis Colts safety Mike Doss was arrested Sunday on gun charges.

Police heard five or six shots coming from outside a restaurant around 2:20 a.m., and found shell casings in the area and a gun in Doss' vehicle, according to a statement issued by the Akron Police Department.

The 24-year-old Doss was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, discharging a firearm within city limits, inducing panic and obstructing official business. He posted bond and was released pending a court appearance.

Colts coach Tony Dungy said he'll impose a swift and severe punishment on Doss.

Dungy said he spoke with Doss, who explained what happened. Dungy said Doss violated team rules and would be punished when Dungy learns exactly what happened.

Doss is a third-year pro who won a national championship at Ohio State in 2002.
