Atlanta Falcons RB Jason Snelling was arrested at 3:35 a.m. Friday morning
after police pulled him over for not staying in his lane. As the officer approached the vehicle, he could sense a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Then...
“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.
Shortly thereafter, at 4:20 a.m., Snelling was placed under arrest and transported to the Barrow County Detention Center."
