10:58 AM ET 11.16 | Falcons running back Jason Snelling was arrested by the Winder (Ga.) Police Department and charged with possession of marijuana and various traffic charges after a traffic stop. Snelling told the officer he had been smoking marijuana earlier in the evening and was coming from a friend's home. "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.

There it is, I knew we wouldn't be able to make the day without somebody in the NFL accused of a felony! Such a proud league!

Makes me want to move. I don't smoke the stuff but my tax money gets wasted arresting, trying, and keeping people locked up over silly crap like this.

Send him to LSU. Les Miles can coach him up on the finer points of eating grass.

Doesn't NFL stand for "National Felons League"?

It tastes like chicken.

He absolutely did not eat marijuana. He just had a really funky smelling salad followed by 12 bags of Doritos.

Les Miles approves of this.
