Michael Goodson arrested, New York Jets running back Mike Goodson was arrested on drug and weapons charges early on Friday morning, reports News 12 in New Jersey.
According to the report, Goodson and another man, identified as
Garrett Evans, were found intoxicated in a parked SUV along Route 80 in
Denville, New Jersey, which is about 15 miles northwest of the Jets'
headquarters in Florham Park. A loaded .45-caliber handgun was found in
the SUV and when the 25-year-old running back was transported to a
hospital for evaluation, marijuana was discovered in his possession.
Both Goodson and Evans were released from the hospital and into the
custody of State Police who transported the two men to the unit's
Netcong's barracks. Mike Garafolo of the USA Today reports that Goodson was the passenger in the vehicle and that Evans has been charged with a DUI.
Goodson played his college ball at Texas A&M and was selected in
the fourth-round of the 2009 NFL draft by the Carolina Panthers. Goodson
spent three seasons with the Panthers before he was traded to the
Oakland Raiders last offseason. In 40 career games, Goodson has rushed
for 722 yards and three touchdowns with 59 receptions for 524 yards and
one touchdown as a receiver out of the backfield.
The Jets signed Goodson to a three-year, $6 million contract on March
15 to compete for a starting job this season. Goodson's deal with the
Jets included a $1 million signing bonus, which was the only portion of
the contract that was guaranteed.
