The Jets running back was arrested at 3:15 a.m. when New Jersey State Police said they found him and another man passed out in their vehicle on Route 80 West in Denville, N.J., and intoxicated with a handgun in the glove compartment. Goodson was indicted in November on two charges — second-degree unlawful possession of a handgun and fourth-degree possession of a hollow point bullet — and rejected a plea deal last month.

Back when the current Panthers linebacker was with the Giants, he was arrested at Philadelphia International Airport when a TSA officer discovered a switchblade inside his luggage. As of early August, Connor was on track for a pretrial diversion program that would expunge the arrest if he stays out of trouble.

In a bizarre case, the Jets tight end was arrested after a woman allegedly saw him masturbating in the parking lot of a Target in East Hanover, N.J., although the charge stemming from the incident is possession of synthetic marijuana. Winslow’s publicist, Denise White, released a statement via Twitter in January that said the player was changing his clothes in his car so “as to not smell like smoke when he returned home.”

The oft-suspended Giants cornerback was arrested on a warrant relating to a reported $9,100 in unpaid child support. Police stopped Hill on state Route 46 in Little Falls, N.J., and also noticed the smell of marijuana smoke coming from his Mercedes, but no drugs were found when police searched the vehicle, according to NJ.com.
