Raiders offensive lineman Mario Henderson as arrested early this morning in Fort Myers, Fla., for carrying a concealed firearm.According to NBC affiliate WBBH, Henderson was initially pulled over in downtown Fort Myers in his black Impala for playing his music too loud and when asked if he had any weapons in the car, Henderson said there was a gun in the glove box.The gun was actually between the drivers seat and the center console, WBBH reported. A records check revealed Henderson did not have a concealed firearm permit(and) the officer informed Henderson was under arrest.WBBH also reported that since Henderson, at 6-feet-6, 302 pounds, is so large, a Lee County Sherriffs Office transport van was requested to take him to the station. But since one was unavailable, he was asked if he wanted to walk the four blocks to the station or lay in the back seat of a squad car. He chose to lay down in the back of the car.Henderson, 26, was also cited for failure to wear a seat belt and issued a city ordinance violation for the loud music and given a verbal warning for dark window tint on his car.He is the second Raider free agent to be arrested this offseason as running back Michael Bush was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving in mid-February. Bush, though, has been assigned first- and third-round tenders as a fourth-year veteran while Henderson, who could not be reached for comment, also just finished his fourth season. Also, middle linebacker Rolando McClain had his SUV shot at in late January.
