Atlanta police arrest Falcons defensive end John Abraham
8:18 pm September 24, 2012, by Michael Cunningham
Atlanta police arrested Falcons defensive end John Abraham tonight at Atlantic Station in Midtown.
John Chafee of the APD’s Public Affairs Unit said were responding to a call about a woman threatening to jump from one of the buildings when Abraham refused to exit the scene. Chafee said police charged Abraham with obstruction of police and obstruction of fire fighters.
Chafee said the charges are misdemeanors and Abraham was booked at the Fulton County Jail.
Abraham did not respond to an email message and his agent, Rich Rosa, did not immediately return a message left on his voicemail. A Falcons spokesman also did not return a phone message.
Chafee said the woman, who did not jump and was uninjured, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
According to a copy of the police report provided by Chafee, officers moved people away from the scene and put up crime scene tape to restrict onlookers from the area. The police report said Abraham entered the restricted area and was confronted by a firefighter who “repeatedly ordered him to leave the scene.”
Nearby officers then responded and ordered Abraham to leave, according to the police report. The report says Abraham “refused and insisted on continuing [farther] into the scene” at which point police arrested him.
Abraham is the second Falcons player to be arrested in the past week.
Gwinett County police arrested running back Michael Turner early last Tuesday on charges of DUI and speeding. Turner later apologized to the Falcons and the team’s fans for what he called a “bad decision on my part.”

Nobody bosses Abe around I guess. Seems like a crazy story, can't wait to hear the rest of it.

Sounds to me like Abe knew the woman.

She forces the city of Atlanta to spend tens of thousands of dollars to keep her from jumping and Abe is the one who gets arrested?
