MUST SEE: Seahawks DL Malik McDowell Cusses Out Cops During Sunday's Arrest

Seattle Seahawks rookie defensive lineman Malik McDowell was arrested early Sunday morning for disorderly conduct after getting into a heated verbal altercation outside of SL Lounge in Atlanta.

McDowell reportedly berated officers at the scene, cursing them out and accusing them of planting evidence on him, which can be seen in the above video obtained by TMZ Sports.

"I repeatedly had to give him instructions and at one point he threw himself down on the ground in a tantrum," one of the officers wrote in a copy of the police report. "He immediately accused me of stealing money from him, while I began to search his person, before placing him inside my vehicle, as we are trained to do. I tried to reason with him but to no avail."

McDowell apologized for the incident on Twitter on Monday.

"I am embarrassed by the situation and my actions on Saturday," he wrote. "I would like to apologize to the Atlanta Police Department, SL Lounge, the entire Seattle Seahawks organization and my teammates. I am a young man who made a mistake and am constantly working towards getting better."
