Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was involved in a bizarre incident with police not far from the scene of an accident Tuesday on Route 400 in Elma, The Buffalo News learned.

Kouandjio was not arrested, but taken to Erie County Medical Center for observation.

According to a police source, Kouandjio was found, not fully clothed, in a field after climbing over an electric fence. When an Erie County Sheriff's deputy went to detain him, the source said, the 6-foot-7, 322-pound Kouandjio yelled, "Shoot me!"

Kouandjio was not at the Bills' minicamp practice Thursday at the AdPro Sports Training Center.

"We are aware of the matter involving Cyrus and are carefully monitoring his condition and gathering more information," the Bills said in a statement. "We don't have all of the details, so we won't have any further comment at this time."

Police were not initially aware of Kouandjio's identity, the source said.
