Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless was arrested and charged Saturday after police said he allegedly fired two shots into the air during an argument outside a Miami Beach, Fla., parking garage, authorities said.

Miami Beach Police said a witness reported that Quarless was riding in a black Porsche with three other people around 5 a.m. Saturday when they pulled up to a car full of women. An arrest affidavit said Quarless and another man approached the car. It said the conversation eventually escalated and the witness told authorities he heard the women yelling for Quarless and his friend to leave them alone.

That's when authorities say Quarless, who is entering his sixth season with the Packers, pulled out a handgun and fired two shots in the air. He and the driver of the Porsche fled, but were later found and the gun was recovered, the affidavit states.

He was charged with discharging a firearm in public.

E-mails to Quarless' agent were not immediately returned. The team said it was aware of the incident but declined further comment.

Quarless started 11 games last season, catching 29 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns.

Bohn shoots 61 at Greenbrier

Jason Bohn shot a 9-under 61 at the PGA Tour Greenbrier Classic and was at 11-under-par 199, tied with Sean O'Hair, Sung Joon Park and Bryce Molder on the Old White TPC course in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. O'Hair and Park both shot 66. Molder had a 67.

It's setting up to be another close finish at the tournament, which debuted in 2010. Two were decided in playoffs and the largest margin was two shots twice.

A crowded leaderboard has 27 players within four shots of the lead. Tiger Woods wasn't among them.

Woods struggled on the back nine, shot 71 and was seven strokes back.

Bohn's round was his best on the PGA Tour and included 14 one-putt greens. He shot 58 in a 2001 Canadian Tour event, the Bayer Championship.

A two-time winner on the PGA Tour, Bohn has two runner-up finishes this season. He needed a birdie putt Friday to make the Greenbrier cut.

Hamilton wins eighth pole of season

Championship leader Lewis Hamilton produced another formidable performance in qualifying at the British Grand Prix to clinch pole position for the eighth time in nine races this season.

With a 46th career pole, the reigning world champion moved to third place on Formula One's all-time leaderboard, with only Michael Schumacher (68) and Ayrton Senna (65) ahead of him.

Hamilton, who clocked 1 minute, 32.248 seconds in qualifying, will share the front row of the grid with Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg for the seventh time this year.

Rosberg appeared relieved after qualifying, given that only four of the last 20 Silverstone races have been won from pole.

"That's incredible and why I was quite happy not to be on pole today," Rosberg said. "I know those statistics and the chances are much bigger to win the race from second."

Hamilton has won at Silverstone in both of his championship-winning seasons but never from pole in front of his home fans.

"It's special when you get pole position here on your home turf and when you see all the fans out there," the Englishman said.

Austin Dillon avoided two major crashes in the final 10 laps of Saturday's Subway Firecracker 250 to win his first race at at Daytona International Speedway. The crashes knocked out several contenders, and Dillon edged Elliott Sadler and Chase Elliott in a green-white-checkered finish for the victory. Kasey Kahne and Benny Gordon rounded out the top five finishers.

Brian Scott dominated the Xfinity Series race and led 84 of the 104 laps, but with four scheduled laps remaining, he tried to shoot up the track to block Sadler. Scott was never clear of Sadler and he ran into him, triggering a 12-car crash. Dillon escaped that wreck and was the leader on the restart.
