Cincinnati Bengals tackle Andre Smith is free on bond after being arrested for carrying a gun at Atlanta's airport.

 

According to Clayton County court documents, 25-year-old Smith was charged with carrying a weapon in an unauthorized location at Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. He posted $3,000 bond Friday.

 

The 25-year-old made his initial court appearance Friday morning and is scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing on Feb. 4.

 

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan says franchise officials will not comment on ongoing legal matters. A call to Smith's attorney was not immediately returned.

 

Smith, of Birmingham, Ala., was a first-round draft pick in 2009 out of Alabama.
