Falcons DE John Abraham Arrested; That’s two “Dirty Birds” in two weeks

What’s going on with the Atlanta Falcons? Looks like they are turning into the “Bad News Bears”, except with arrest records.

Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham was arrested Monday night on two misdemeanor obstruction charges when he allegedly refused to leave an area taped off by police.

Fulton County jail records showed Abraham remained in jail late Monday night pending bond of $7,000, or $3,500 for each of the obstruction charges.

WAGA-TV reported ( ) Abraham allegedly entered a taped-off area where a woman was threatening to jump off a building. Abraham was arrested after refusing requests from firefighters and police to leave the area.

The arrest of Abraham, the team’s top pass rusher, comes one week after running back Michael Turner’s drunken driving arrest. Turner, also charged with speeding, was allowed to play in Sunday’s 27-3 win in San Diego.

Is Mike Smith losing control of the Atlanta Falcons?
