DE John Abraham Arrested on Two Misdemeanor Obstruction Charges

A week after Michael Turner was arrested for a DUI, another Falcons player finds himself in trouble.

Defensive end John Abraham has been arrested on two misdemeanor obstruction charges and remains in custody on Monday night. Fulton County jail records show Abraham was in jail pending bond of $7,000, or $3,500 for each of the obstruction charges.

WAGA-TV reports Abraham allegedly entered a taped-off area where a woman was threatening to jump off a building. Abraham was arrested after refusing to leave the area.

The arrest of Abraham, the team’s top pass rusher, comes one week after running back Michael Turner’s drunken driving arrest. Turner was allowed to play in Sunday’s 27-3 win in San Diego.

The Falcons issued a statement Monday night, saying the team was aware of “the news regarding John Abraham” and was gathering information.
