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. "If want to call every officer a (expletive), I can".

McDowell is seen being handcuffed and placed in the back of a police vehicle by a pair of officers.

Now, video details of his arrest have been obtained by TMZ Sports.

TMZ previously reported on Sunday that McDowell was arrested outside of a nightclub in Atlanta for disorderly conduct. Club employees, and one of McDowell's friends, told him that he had not paid yet.

Police say it started when McDowell accused nightclub staff members of stealing from him.

McDowell was kicked out of the club a second time because of his continued shouting about the money and for pouring bottles of liquor out.

"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 was released on $325 bond, according to the Times.

"I am embarrassed by the situation and my actions Saturday", McDowell wrote.

McDowell was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks with the 35th overall pick in April. "There's not any progress being made in that direction".
