With the Atlanta Falcons headed into what most think is a must win game against the Saints this weekend, arguably the Falcons’ best defensive tackle was arrested last night on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, amongst other things.
Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute after a police officer said he smelled marijuana in the player’s SUV during a routine traffic stop Thursday night.
Babineaux was with another man, 25-year-old Aaron Robinson Minneapolis, who also was arrested. Robinson was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, a felony.
In addition to the possession charges, Babineaux is charged with having no tag light and driving without a license and with an expired tag. He also was charged with tinting his car windows too much.
Despite the arrest, Babineaux is still likely to play this weekend. Especially being that this is a must win and all.
