Another Atlanta Falcon Player Arrested Only Days After Teammate
I don’t know what is going on with the Atlanta Falcons but the police seem to be their new found friends.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham was arrested Monday night at Atlantic Station in Midtown charged with obstruction of police and obstruction of fire fighters.
The APD’s Public Affairs Unit said they were responding to a call about a woman threatening to jump from one of the buildings when Abraham refused to exit the scene.
According to a copy of the police report, officers moved people away from the scene and put up crime scene tape to restrict onlookers from the area. The police report said Abraham entered the restricted area and was confronted by a firefighter who “repeatedly ordered him to leave the scene.” Nearby officers then responded and ordered Abraham to leave, according to the police report. The report says Abraham “refused and insisted on continuing [farther] into the scene” at which point police arrested him.
As for the woman she did not jump and was uninjured, but was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
Maybe the woman was his friend? Who knows? We’ll keep you posted.
