Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Jah Reid was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery following an altercation at a strip club in Key West, Fla., the Baltimore Sun reports.  He was the third Ravens player arrested in the past month.

And he was at least the 48th NFL player arrested in the past year.

For those who keep track, there’s an NFL arrest database here.

Running back Ray Rice is facing assault charges after his February arrest in an Atlantic City Casino. Wide receiver Deonte Thompson was arrested on February 21 for possession of marijuana.

Reid is 6′ 7″ and weighs 340 pounds. The Sun reported that Reid, 25, and another man, Benjamin Buxton:

…got into a fight with several other people at the Red Garter Saloon, where they were described as the aggressors in a confrontation that included security personnel at the adult entertainment venue, according to Key West police department public information officer Alyson Crean.
