MIAMI -- Things are never quiet in the offseason for the Cowboys.

Starting fullback Deon Anderson was arrested in the early hours Tuesday morning on traffic warrants discovered by Addison, Texas, police who were called to a disturbance between Anderson and restaurant staff.

Anderson said he was trying to start his car when he exchanged words with a valet attendant and a security guard at the BlackFinn restaurant in Addison.

Anderson said he didn't use any profanity during the incident and declined further comment.

Addison police said they are still investigating. Cowboys officials said they are aware of the incident and are looking into it.

Anderson was transferred to an Irving jail at 5:21 a.m. and later posted bond at 7:20 a.m.

Anderson, 27, had just finished his third season with the Cowboys. He started 10 regular-season games and had no carries.

It's the second consecutive offseason a Cowboys player was arrested. Last year, outside linebacker Anthony Spencer was arrested in Indianapolis for disorderly conduct.

UPDATE: According to an Addison police statement, police confiscated two weapons at the scene and Anderson’s car was impounded for further investigation. No charges have been filed at this time in relation to the weapons. Also, Anderson's brother, Devon, was arrested at the scene on charges of public intoxication.
