Morristown, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - New York Jets running back Mike Goodson
has been indicted on two weapons charges stemming from a traffic stop in New
Jersey back in May.
The Morris County Prosecutor's Office put out a press release Thursday
announcing that Goodson was indicted on a second-degree charge of unlawful
possession of a handgun and a fourth-degree charge of prohibited weapons and
According to the press release, the second-degree charge was for a .45-caliber
Taurus handgun found in the glove box, while the fourth-degree charge was for
possession of a hollow-point bullet.
Goodson was the passenger in the car during the May 17 traffic stop and was
found carrying a small amount of marijuana. The two drug charges, possession
of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, are still outstanding,
according to the prosecutor's office.
Goodson was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the
NFL's PED policy and appeared in just two games before being placed on season-
ending injured reserve after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in a Week 6 loss to
the Pittsburgh Steelers.
New York signed Goodson as a free agent just two days prior to the incident,
agreeing to a reported three-year, $6.9 million contract with the former
Oakland Raider running back.
