Falcons defensive end John Abraham becomes the second Falcons player to be arrested this week in Atlanta.

John was taken in to Atlanta police custody not to long ago  at Atlantic Station in Midtown.

John Chafee of the APD’s Public Affairs Unit said police charged Abraham with obstruction of police and obstruction of fire fighters. According to Chafee, officials were responding to a call about a woman threatening to jump from one of the buildings when Abraham refused to exit the scene.

Chafee said the charges are misdemeanors and Abraham was to be booked at the Fulton County jail.

Chafee said the woman, who did not jump and was not injured, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Gwinett County police arrested running back Michael Turner early last Tuesday on charges of DUI and speeding. Turner later apologized to the Falcons and the team’s fans for what he called a “bad decision on my part.”

    C’mon Man now is not the time to be f#$@in up we finally playing to our potential

    I agree with R.E.D. and Hahz the timing is horrible. The Falcons are riding high the city is a buzz everywhere u go people talking about this could be our year #RiseUp. Man I mean on one hand if it was a female I knew I guess he was being a loyal friend, but on the other hand your a pro athelete in the city so you must of really become unruley for the cops to take you in most of them would of probably let him slide and just wanted a quick photo op or autograph. Falcons vs. Texans Super Bowl, provided we can stay out of jail and stay injury free.

    i believe abe has a condo or two at the 12 in atlantic station. he had a right to be there and knew the female in question.

    the cops were overzealous in arresting him. they could have cuffed him and left him on the sidewalk or in the van until the situation was over. no need to take it in.
