Former NFL star Roderick Coleman -- a former All-Pro defensive end for the Falcons -- was arrested for DUI in Georgia this weekend ... after allegedly losing control of his truck and nearly taking out a pack of motorcycle riders.
TMZ Sports has learned ... the 38-year-old -- who played in the league for 9 seasons -- was taken into custody in Douglas County (outside of Atlanta) around 5 AM Sunday morning.
Witnesses tell TMZ Sports ... Coleman was attempting to make a left turn -- and overshot -- hitting a curb and losing control of his truck. We're told he skidded off the road and onto a nearby grassy area before coming to a stop.
We're told the truck came thiiiis close to hitting a group of bikers who were in town for a motorcycle convention -- but fortunately he missed.
Cops responded to the scene -- and Coleman was eventually booked for misdemeanor DUI and failing to maintain lane control. He was released after posting $3,500 bond.
Attempts to reach Coleman were unsuccessful.
