Former Atlanta Falcon Star Jamal Anderson Arrested For Cocaine Possession

Being from Atlanta, this is a very disappointing story. Former Atlanta Falcon football star Jamal Anderson has been arrested for cocaine and marijuana possession. Here's an excerpt from the A.P.:

Former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal Anderson has been charged with felony cocaine possession and misdemeanor marijuana possession after being arrested at an Atlanta nightclub, authorities said Sunday.

Anderson, a fan favorite who created the "Dirty Bird" touchdown celebration dance, played eight seasons for the Falcons before leaving the team with a knee injury in 2001.

Atlanta police spokesman Officer Otis Redmond said Anderson, 36, was arrested early Sunday at the Peachtree Tavern in Atlanta's trendy Buckhead district. Redmond said a second man, whose name was not immediately available, also was arrested.

Redmond said an off-duty officer working in security at the club alerted police. Redmond said both men allegedly had powder cocaine in their possession and that Anderson also had a suspected marijuana cigarette in his pocket.

Anderson and the other man were taken to Fulton County jail. Anderson has a court hearing on the charge at 11 a.m Monday, authorities said.
