Last Tuesday, there was news of Falcons running back Michael Turner being arrested for DUI. And this Tuesday we have news of another Falcons player being arrested.
According to the AJC, Falcon defensive end John Abraham was arrested Monday night for obstruction of police and obstruction of fire fighters.
Abraham was at the scene where a woman was threatening to jump from a building in Midtown Atlanta. When police arrived, they asked Abraham to leave the scene. Abraham refused and was eventually taken into custody.
According to a copy of the police report provided by Chafee, 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.
