(NEW YORK) — New York Jets running back Mike Goodson is not off to a great start with his new team.
Goodson was arrested early Friday on drug possesion and weapons charges, according to New Jersey State Police.
Goodson and another man were stopped on Route 80 in Denville, N.J. when a tow-truck driver found them. He then called 911 when he saw the physical condition of Goodson, who was in the passenger seat of an SUV. Goodson was brought to a nearby hospital where he was discharged when it was determined he was healthy enough to leave.
Goodson was found with a small amount of marijuana and a semi-automatic handgun on his person.
A Jets spokesman said: “We are aware of the report and are gathering information.”
The 25-year old was signed to a three-year deal by the Jets in the offseason after playing previously with Carolina and Oakland.
