Taco loco: Ex-49er Bogan arrested in Arizona

Two days after he was released by the 49ers, wide receiver Dontavia Bogan was arrested in Arizona after punching a security guard, according to a report in the Arizona Republic. Judging from Bogan's mugshut, it appears the security guard punched back.

The incident took place Sunday around 10 p.m. at El Hefe Tacos in Scottsdale, Ariz. Afterward police there arrested Bogan, 23, for assault, disorderly conduct and threats. Bogan played at South Florida but lives in Scottsdale.

The 49ers signed him as an undrafted free agent in July, but he suffered an ACL tear after one week of raining camp and was placed on injured reserve for the 2011 season. Bogan was cleared medically on Thursday and cut on Friday.
