Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham was arrested for obstruction of police and obstruction of fire fighters Monday night in midtown Atlanta. Abraham was booked in the Fulton County Jail on the misdemeanor chargers.
Police originally were responding to a woman threatening to jump from a building in Atlantas Atlantic Station area, according to John Chafee of the APDs Public Affairs Unit in a statement to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Abraham is the second Falcons player to be arrested in the last week, following starting running back Michael Turners arrest on charges of driving under the influence and speeding. Turner apologized for the incident and rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown in the teams 27-3 win over the San Diefo Chargers this past Sunday.
The Falcons have yet to comment on Abraham's situation.
Abraham, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, is in his 13th season in the NFL. He is the leagues active leader with 114 career sacks.
