Atlanta Falcons rb Jason Snelling ate weed while being arrested


What do you do if you’re pulled over by cops as a professional athlete with weed on you? If you’re Atlanta Falcons running back Jason Snelling, you eat it. Check the deets on his arrest for; possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, possession of drug-related materials, failure to maintain lane, failure to maintain insurance, improper use of dealer license plate, no registration and expired or no driver’s license.

After all, if you’re going to roll out with weed, might as well have no registration and an expired driver’s license, right?

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… I searched the vehicle and located a metal grinder where Mr. Snelling had said it was.

Another officer who was talking to Snelling at the time noticed that the 29-year-old was swallowing while he was being questioned. When the officer requested Snelling to open his mouth, several leafy particles were visible.

At 4:20 a.m., Snelling was placed under arrest and taken to the Barrow County Detention Center, where he has made bond, according to another report by the Barrow Journal’s Chris Bridges.

Snelling has been with the Falcons since 2007 where he was a seventh round draft pick.
