HOUSTON — The father of Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver was beaten by Houston, Texas, police officers as they arrested him for outstanding traffic warrants, Driver’s family members claimed Wednesday.

As they beat him and forced him to swallow something, the officers told Marvin Driver Jr. he was “going to see Jesus,” according to relatives and community activist Quanell Evans, who identified himself as Quanell X.

“Mr. Marvin Driver Jr. is now at Hermann Hospital in ICU where he can’t even speak,” relatives said in a statement. “Doctors say there is some bleeding on his brain from blunt force trauma.”

Police said Driver was arrested for outstanding traffic warrants and was found to be “unresponsive” upon his arrival at jail. Paramedics transported him to the hospital, they said. The Houston Police Department said in a written statement it takes the assault allegations “very seriously, and will begin a thorough investigation into the matter.”

The two officers involved remain on duty pending further investigation, police said. However, relatives and Evans called for the officers involved to be suspended or placed on administrative leave until the investigation is complete.
