NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Eagles offensive tackle King Dunlap has been charged with reckless driving and disorderly conduct for driving his Cadillac Escalade onto the plaza outside the arena hosting the Southeastern Conference women's basketball tournament.

Nashville police say Dunlap drove his 2004 Escalade onto the sidewalk and parked near the front doors Friday. He told officers he was picking up his father, who uses a wheelchair. Police say they asked Dunlap to move to the nearby street while offering to help with his father.

Dunlap refused and was arrested. Relatives who had been at the SEC tournament moved the SUV.

Police say Dunlap, 25, was cooperative after being taken into custody. A bond of $1,000 was set for the Nashville native.
