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.

I don't do coke, but I wouldn't tell bar security if someone happened to be doing it in the bar bathroom. Lame.

how dumb    

This probably won't stick.. I don't think you can look into a bathroom stall unless you suspect someone is in danger, not doing drugs.

What an idiot, another dumb jock! I mean if you’re going to be a powder head, can you at least do it in your own back yard, don’t bring it out in public.

I don't know what is more disgusting, the fact that Jamal was snorting coke off of a filthy toilet of a public restroom or that the 36 year old Jamal was hanging out with a 20 year old guy who wasn't even old enough to legally be in that bar. What is the relationship between Jamal and this young guy?

This is so sad! I feel bad for him. If he'd done it off a mirror or whatever else a cokehead snorts off of, I wouldn't be so sympathetic. However, snorting lines off a toilet is evidence of a psychological imbalance.

Dude, i go to this bar often. ive seen him there often. i can tell you that if you saw this bathroom you wouldn't even want to put your beer on the toilet. not sure i even get piss into the toilet. as far as someone hearing snorting noises.. i'm calling bull****. Its a music venue. bands are loud as ****. sounds like a hater was in there and ratted him out. ill bet it was a little frat boy who's girlfriend played with Jamal's dirty bird!!
