San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Roderick Green was arrested and charged with four misdemeanor charges, including possession of marijuana, unlawfully carrying a weapon, reckless driving and interfering with the duties of a police officer, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Green allegedly didn’t cooperate with a police officer in his hometown of Brenham, Texas.
According to a police report, Green was pulled over for speeding and refused to roll down a slightly open window. Instead, the window was rolled up, according to a sheriff’s department patrol clerk.
Green was instructed to get out of the truck, which he did. And then he was arrested.
Green, a former Baltimore Ravens draft pick who recorded a dozen tackles and 3.5 sacks last season, was released on a personal recognizance bond.
He’s an unrestricted free agent, so this incident obviously doesn’t help his chances with potential NFL employers.
In an unrelated incident where he was the victim of a crime, Green was stabbed in the stomach when he played for the Ravens during an altercation at a bowling alley where he was confronted by a man and chased outside the parking lot. His injuries weren’t serious, which allowed us at the time to poke some good-natured fun of surveillance video of Green running from the assailant.
