Big Mo finds himself in hot water while cruising New York City.

Former New York Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson has been arrested and charged with DUI, according to the Associated Press.

Wilkerson, 29, was arrested on Saturday night and eventually arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court and released on his own recognizance, a police spokesman said.

The potential reason for the traffic stop was due to Wilkerson ignoring a stop sign. He is also being charged with driving while ability-impaired.

Police said Wilkerson was pulled over in the Washington Heights neighborhood at 3:40 a.m. ET while driving a 2019 Rolls Royce. He recorded a blood-alcohol level of .09; the legal limit is .08. Wilkerson is set to appear in court on July 8, according to court records.

Alex Spiro, Mo’s attorney, declined to comment to any story following the heels of the original AP report.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Temple product once represented the Jets franchise player. Chosen 30th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft, Mo tallied 44.5 sacks, one safety, 11 forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, two interceptions, 29 pass deflections, 405 total tackles and 71 for loss in 105 games over seven seasons in Northern New Jersey.

After his release following the 2017 campaign, he signed with the Green Bay Packers. The now-injury prone interior lineman can’t stay on the field. Playing a total of three games for the Pack a year ago, Wilkerson could muster just five tackles and no sacks.

Muhammad Wilkerson remains an unemployed free agent as mandatory minicamp nears.
