Ex-NFL Star -- Busted with 'Cocked' Automatic Pistol

10/8/2010 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Glen Coffee -- the former San Francisco 49ers star who recently retired after one season to pursue a religious calling -- was arrested for illegally carrying a "cocked" automatic pistol in his car ... and TMZ has obtained his mug shot.

Glen Coffee Mug Shot

According to police in Fort Walton Beach, Florida ... 23-year-old Coffee was pulled over for speeding ... but cops quickly discovered that Glen's vehicle -- a 2008 Cadillac -- had no registration or insurance.

Because the vehicle was deemed "unlawful to be on the roadway," cops called for the Cadillac to be towed ... but first, they ran a quick search -- and found a "black 380 SIG Sauer automatic pistol."

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ ... "The pistol was recovered with the hammer 'cocked' to the rear. It was located in the center console ... readily accessible to Coffee."

Coffee was arrested and taken to a nearby station -- where he was booked for carrying a concealed firearm ... a 3rd degree felony.

Coffee had a pretty decent rookie season with the 49ers ... but suddenly "retired" during training camp this year claiming "[God] told me a long time ago to walk away from the game.”

Jesus here again TMZ screws up a story... Does anyone in TMZ know ANYTHING about firearms?

most guns now made to be carried "****ed". Hell my xd-40 is ****ed and doesn't even have a hammer...

Just leave crap simple as in he had a loaded gun. Having a loaded gun ****ed means nothing over un****ed other than .02 sec of time..

to anyone thinking because the gun was ****ed made it something more than a pistol should stop. This is a media trick to make it sound mean and evil.

oh by the way I am allowed to carry 4 pistols on me at any time legally.
so one guy driving a 50k+ ride having one in his car is nothing.

The stupid ass should have gone and got his CCW since they are easy in FL but trust me people... tons now carry legally everyday. Even in California the numbers are very high.

In Nevada this would have been legal to do and I think more states have the same rules...

He is a thug and a gangster because why? He's a young black man with a gun in his car? What if he'd been a 40 year old white guy? Would you have come to the same conclusion?

As far as I'm concerned as long as he has no criminal record I have no problem with him carrying a firearm in his car. Making a big deal over it being ****ed is ridiculous.

In Arizona you can carry a concealed weapon without a permit.Just another attempt of anti -gunners to use the word automatic and locked and loaded to make the gun sound menacing.Once the car is impounded maybe the police have the right to search and secure it.

What a swell guy and yet another example of gunslinging Christianity. I don't think this is what Jesus had in mind! Turn the other cheek, not blow the Mother-----r's head off! Of course he couldn't remain in football; it's far too violent!

"It sounds like he's a drug dealer."

lol, What did you expect your reading TMZ. They are a gossip rag and stories that titilate and sizzle sell. Gossip rags misrepresent and distort the truth for increased page views all of the time. It's all about the money.

Uh, please keep in mind that this area of Florida is known TO ITS RESIDENTS as The Arian Nation, it is so white bread up there. The cops were just pulling him over because you don't see a whole lot of black folks in this neck of the woods!
