Atlanta Falcons
sack king John Abraham refused to be stopped last night by police who were dealing with a suicidal woman ... and, as a result, got himself arrested on two charges of obstruction.

Abraham was busted by Atlanta PD when he allegedly refused to leave an area officers had taped off because a woman was threatening to jump off a building.

Abraham -- the NFL's active career sacks leader with 114 -- got out of jail early Tuesday morning on $7,000 bond.

The Falcons are 0 for 2 with cops this season -- the team's star running back Michael Turner was busted for DUI and speeding last week in Atlanta.

BTW ... the woman did not jump.

Don't the police know that the world revolves around him? Pro athletes are given too much money and respect they don't earn. When will we start honoring real heroes?

Details? I see many trolls commenting before we even know what happened outside of the arrest. Did he know the woman? Was she friend, family, etc.?

Im sorry, but if it was my loved one or relative threating to jump the police would have to arrest me too before I just walk away. Sometimes you have to ignore the law. It has nothing to do with him being a football player thinking he's above the law. Thats dumb.

If she was a young, hot, blonde -he may have been there to Captain Save a Hoe her. Atlanta has a racist PD and still recognizes a black man as a boy.

Was he trying to help? Remember T.I. helped talk a jumper down either late last year or early this year so...

Probably some chick he Knocked up! If she wanted to kill herself she would have jumped before the police got there on the scene. I think it was some woman that wanted Abraham's attention,but when she realized he was being arrested her job was done and she decided life was worth living after all.
