New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham found himself in legal trouble, according TMZ.
The 36-year old Graham was arrested after allegedly wandering in traffic in Southern California and resisting arrest.
Graham, known for his impressive career and successful stints with the Packers, Bears, and Seahawks, was reportedly acting erratically near a resort when law enforcement received a call about a suspicious individual.
Upon arriving at the scene, officers claimed to witness Graham walking in the streets. Attempts to arrest him were met with resistance, leading to his eventual apprehension.
The former All-Pro has been taken into custody on charges of suspected controlled substance influence and misdemeanor charges of resisting, delaying, and obstructing a police officer.
Graham, who signed with the Saints in 2023 after a year out of the league, has since been released by the police. The incident remains under investigation, per TMZ.
Jimmy Graham’s career has been marked by his exceptional performance, including 85 touchdowns and five Pro Bowl selections.
This recent incident has raised questions about his current circumstances and the events leading up to his arrest.
