SAN DIEGO -- Police say San Diego Chargers linebacker Antwan Applewhite was arrested for investigation of DUI on Friday morning.

Lt. Andra Brown says an officer working a DUI patrol pulled over Applewhite shortly before 2:30 a.m. in Pacific Beach. He was booked into county jail and later posted $2,500 bail.

The team calls his arrest "disappointing" and says it will let the legal process run its course.
