The younger Burress allegedly elbowed the officer in the face as he tried to put handcuffs on his brother. He has posted a $3,500 bond and has been released. A trial date for him has not been set.
Under NFL rules, the case was automatically reviewed by the NFL Players Association, which said Burress will likely undergo treatment as a result.
An arrest automatically triggers an evaluation by the league and this often results in the player being entered into a treatment program.
This is Burress' second run-in with the law in the past 12 months. He was issued a citation last year in Cleveland for violating carrying an open beer can on public streets.
Burress' latest run-in will not qualify as a strike under the league's substance abuse policy.
