Lefeged was taken into police custody early Saturday morning after authorities discovered a semi-automatic pistol in the vehicle in which he had been riding.
Police also said they detected the odor of marijuana in the car and found a bottle of vodka.
The car had been pulled over for speeding, but it then sped away from the scene. Lefeged and another passenger were caught after they attempted to flee from officers.
Lefeged is being held pending Tuesday’s hearing in D.C.
The Colts say they’ve been made aware of the arrest and will withhold making any comment on the situation until they know more about it.
Lefeged grew up in Montgomery County.
