WINDER, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta Falcons running back Jason Snelling has been arrested on misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Winder Police Officer Chris Cooper says Snelling was arrested early Friday morning following a traffic stop. Cooper says officers pulled over Snelling's SUV after noticing it weaving and crossing the center line. Cooper says officers smelled marijuana inside the vehicle and determined Snelling did not have a valid driver's license or insurance.
The Falcons said in a statement the team was ''aware of the situation concerning Jason Snelling and are in the process of gathering additional information.'' The team declined further comment, calling it an ongoing legal matter.
Cooper says Snelling was taken to the Barrow County Detention Center and released after posting bond.
