Cops: "Dirty Bird" Creator Blew Lines Off Toilet

2/8/2009 3:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jamal AndersonAnother former Falcon's behind bars -- this time it's a running back.

Jamal Anderson, the former superstar who invented the "Dirty Bird" endzone dance, was busted at an Atlanta area tavern last night and charged with felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor possession of marijuana

Cops say they found some powdered coke and a joint on Anderson's person, and whisked him off to Fulton County jail.

Anderson has a hearing set for Monday morning.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal Anderson was busted inside a bathroom stall -- with another -- at the Peachtree Tavern after a patron heard someone making a "snorting noise."

The patron reported the "noise" to a bar security guard -- who happened to be an off-duty Atlanta Police Officer.

The Atlanta PD tells TMZ the security guard went into the bathroom to investigate when he heard the suspicious noise. We're told the guard then popped over the top of the stall and claims to have seen Anderson and another man doing lines of coke off the toilet tank. He immediately arrested both men.

Since the NFL season is officially over, and not much to really talk about other than the upcoming NFL draft, I wonder if and when he will be back on ESPN's First Take as an analyst. Since Disney is the parent company, they may decide to cancel his contract. Too bad, I liked hearing his views on certain teams and players. Who would have thought this guy was into drugs at his age, and being clean cut and well spoken on many sports topics. Both he and Kordell Stewart made a good team on NFL topics during the season. This is one "Dirty Bird" that should have flown far south away from drugs, especially after his playing days were well behind him. I guess some addictions are too tough for some to leave for good in the past.

They gonna love that dirty bird dance by you in the fulton county jail homes-----with cigarettes being burned into your thighs and buttocks to wiggle and move faster if you try to slow down while being taken. Rich goof like you is just what the predators are looking for...best hope for a quick bond hearing---even an overnight in there can change your outlook on your own people.

YOu and A Roid, taking the place of Phelps and Bonds being in the sports non hero news. I hope the NFL continues to get rid of the influence idiots like this one have brought to the game that only signifies drug use, abuse of women and disdain for authority.

I thoughts this was supposed to all change with the hope that just got elected...not with these selfish jerks...

I watched this guy on ESPN Frst Take and other features leading up to the Superbowl and I noticed wierd mood swings during his commentary, once threatening to punch skip Balas and then later stating "You Know I was just kidding" and another episode where once again he threatened violence and once again, stating "he was kidding and would never hit anyone". HELLO these kinds of Wierd mood swings are a direct symptoms of Cocaine use. Funny how the ESPN "experts" who report on atheletes behavior didn't see this when it was right under their noses.

Nick Sunset you are right on and logic with no g you are an idiot. The dude is snorting coke and you don't think he should get in trouble? There is a reason that is illegal it can kill. He could go crazy and kill someone or it could stop his heart asap.

Nick Sunset, yea espn is filled with a bunch of morons running that place. they have sold their soul to the devil. I saw him last monday and he looked a bit off and jumpy. Not what I remembered of him in the past.
