Goodson was reportedly taken into custody after he and another man were discovered in a stopped SUV on Route 80 in Denville, N.J. They were, according to authorities, intoxicated at the time. While bringing Goodson to a hospital, marijuana was found in his possession, and authorities came across a loaded 45-caliber handgun upon a search of the vehicle. CBS Sports' Will Brinson is additionally reporting that the firearm was accompanied by hollow-point bullets.

Who???

Jets just signed this guy on March 15th. They can't do anything right lately. This is the chump who made the throat-slashing gesture at the enemy crowd after scoring a TD a few years back. His dad's doing a long stretch for mortgage fraud. You can't fix stupid, but apparently you can inherit it.

I remember him being the #3 guy in Carolina. I knew he had moved on, but couldn't recall where.

It's rather satisfying to find out he's putting the Jets in the news, yet again.

If you're going to break gun laws, you should do it in NY/NJ/CT. Plaxico's situation should have taught him that.

Again.... hardly what I'd call a crime. They weren't even driving. Just more fund raising scams by the donut brigade.

having hollow point bullets in your handgun is illegal in NJ, what a Police state....I am glad I live in PA

Idiots! Lucky to be alive to be arrested; .. " After receiving a 911 call from a tow-truck driver at about 3:15 a.m., police found them stopped in the left lane of Interstate 80 west in Denville, about 25 miles west of New York city. "

Stopped in the LEFT lane? 3:00 in the morning? Surprised they weren't run over by a semi.

Poor Jets, .."Two weeks ago, the Jets cut defensive end Claude Davis and cornerback Cliff Harris after they were arrested and charged with marijuana possession in Morristown, several miles from where Goodson was arrested. "

They just got to stop signing people and find a 7 on 7 league.

Damn, them Jets are doing one bang up job of loading their firearms, um I meant their roster....

Seriously! At this point I think it's a minor miracle the Boston Bomber wasn't on the roster.

He was, however, granted a tryout.

He was actually on the Bengals practice squad

Really people.......Carrying a loaded gun and a doobie is a serious crime but conducting covert operations in a foreign country is just padding for your political resume'. Half the people I know smoke weed, at least occasionally, and everyone I know has a gun or two.
