Jason Snelling just added to the Atlanta Falcons 2013 woes with a middle-of-the-night arrest that the franchise can’t be thrilled with. Police say Snelling’s Lincoln Navigator couldn’t stay in its lane, and when they pulled him over to talk to him, the SUV reeked of marijuana. Then, this, from the Barrow County News:
“I asked Mr. Snelling if there was any other marijuana in the vehicle, and he told me that there was a grinder in the center console of the vehicle and that it had a little bit of marijuana left in it,” the arresting officer wrote in his report. “… I searched the vehicle and located a metal grinder where Mr. Snelling had said it was.”
While the vehicle was being searched, another officer speaking with Snelling noticed he was repeatedly swallowing during their conversation.
The officer asked Snelling to open his mouth, and observed several green leafy particles inside.
Snelling denied eating any marijuana.
Snelling clearly came to play: No license, no insurance. Sounds like quite a Thursday in Georgia. Let me guess, you’d be partying like this if you were 2-7, right? [via Barrow County News]
