L.A. Rams safety T.J. McDonald was arrested for DUI early Tuesday morning after cops say he crashed into a parked car ... TMZ Sports has learned.
We're told McDonald waited for police to arrive and when they got there, cops noticed something was off about the 25-year-old ... so they brought him to the station for a DUI screening.
He was eventually arrested for DUI -- not alcohol related. We're told officials believe there may be medication involved. He has since been released on his own recognizance.
We reached out to the Rams for comment -- so far, no word back.
