Louis Murphy became the third Raiders player to be arrested this offseason when he was charged with three misdemeanors in Gainesville, Fla., according to the Gainesville Sun.

Murphy was charged with possession of drug without a valid prescription, failure to obey a police officer and resisting arrest without violence.

Gainesville police said Murphy did not pull over despite being requested to do so early Sunday morning and instead drove to a city parking lot, where he and his passengers exited his Cadillac Escalade and walked away.

Murphy, according to the report, refused to show identification and wouldn't put his hands behind his back when police attempted to put him in handcuffs.

A fourth-round draft pick out of Florida in 2009, Murphy has been the Raiders' most productive wide receiver over the past two seasons with 75 receptions for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns.

Running back Michael Bush was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving in Clark County, Ind., on Feb. 12, and tackle Mario Henderson was arrested after a traffic stop in Fort Myers, Fla., On March 17 for carrying a concealed firearm.
