Jamal Anderson has been an analyst on ESPN's First Take for around a year, and on Saturday night the Former Falcons RB was arrested on felony cocaine possession, and misdemeanor marijuana possession charges, late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. From the AJC via Online Sports Guys....
“The patron had heard what he thought was sniffing from inside the stall and told the off-duty officer,” Fulton County Police spokesman Otis Redmond said. “The officer went into the restroom, heard the same sniffing and peered over the stall door. He saw Jamal Anderson and Mark Hudson sniffing two lines of powdered cocaine off the back of the toilet.”Now I'm not condoning Anderson's actions in the least, but how many of you would run to a cop if you heard "sniffing noises" in a bathroom? I'm guessing just about none of you. Either way though, a crime is a crime, and cocaine possession is serious business. I wouldn't expect to see Anderson back on ESPN's airwaves anytime soon.
Police found a 1-inch square bag of cocaine and a marijuana cigarette inside Anderson’s pocket. The men were arrested without incident and booked into the Fulton County Jail for felony possession of cocaine, Redmond said. Anderson was also cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
