NY Jets Running Back

ARRESTED

0517_mike_goodson_jetsNew York Jets running back Michael Goodson was arrested in New Jersey early this morning after cops say the 25-year-old was in possession of weed and a loaded handgun.

According to cops, Goodson -- who was signed by the Jets during the off-season to compete for the starting RB job -- was a passenger in an SUV that was parked along Route 80 in Denville, NJ.

Cops say both Goodson and the driver of the vehicle appeared WASTED when they approached the vehicle.

During the encounter, cops say Goodson was found to be in possession of weed (less than 50 grams) -- PLUS a loaded .45 caliber and hollow-point bullets.

FYI --  a hollow-point bullet is used to create maximum damage to its intended target ... and in NJ hollow-points are not allowed to be carried around in public, with few exceptions.

Cops say both Goodson and the driver were so intoxicated that they were both transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The driver of the SUV was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

According to local reports, both Goodson and the driver were released from the hospital and into the custody of the NJ State Police. They're both still in custody.

If you're unfamiliar with Michael Goodson -- it's probably because he only has 3 career TDs.

Ya, and Tim Tebow was a distraction. Glad to see they have all these quality guys. I'm sure he had a conceal carry permit, ya, right. Check on this guy in 5 years and see what car wash he's working at.

If gun laws in Jersey are similar to N.Y., He may get manditory 3 years similar to Plaxico Burress. I'm sure the hollow point bullets wern't making the police smile ..

Haven't really heard of the dude and yes what he did was dumb...but it makes me laugh when I see a bunch if haters going to town on him...get a life and stop hating on the fact that yes he may only have 3 carrer TD's but he was smart enough to still be making a hell of a lot more than all y'all and doing a lot less. So keep being hateful and he will keep making money "working" a lot less than you...and if and when he goes broke at least he can still say he did more than most y'all lol let him live his life
