Cody Grimm, a backup safety for the Bucs, is entering his fourth season and recently took a paycut to remain with the team.

Bucs safety Cody Grimm was arrested Sunday for the second time since March 10 on public intoxication charges in Virginia.

Grimm, 26, the son of Redskins Hall of Fame offensive lineman Russ Grimm, was arrested at the Hampton Inn in Leesburg, Va., at 5:30 a.m., Sunday where he was attending a wedding.

According to the Washington Post, court records show Grimm has a hearing scheduled for July 9.

While the public intoxication charge is a misdemeanor, Grimm could face more severe penalties due to a previous arrest on public intoxication in Christianburg, Va., on March 10. The Post reported that Grimm was given a ‘deferred disposition,’ in that case which would allow prosecutors to drop the charge if the former Virginia Tech star had fulfilled certain promises and remained out of trouble.

Grimm, a backup safety for the Bucs, is entering his fourth season and recently took a paycut to remain with the team. In a statement released by the team, coach Greg Schiano said he was "disappointed" to learn of Grimm’s arrest.

"Our players know our expectations on and off the field and we take these matters very seriously,’’ Schiano said. “When we feel we have obtained all the necessary information, we will act accordingly."
