More details are emerging about New York Jets running back Mike Goodson’s arrest last Friday.
When police found him his car that was stopped on Interstate 80 in Denville, N.J, he was committing a crime trifecta so to speak – drunk, high and possession of a handgun.
Goodson “was incoherent, slobbering and had vomited all over himself as well as the interior of the vehicle,” when he was arrested early Friday morning, New Jersey State Trooper Carlos Mesa said in an affidavit seen by USA TODAY Sports.
Goodson appeared in court Wednesday to plead not guilty to gun and drug charges in connection to the arrest.
Police said they found a baggie of marijuana in Goodson’s pants pocket, and a loaded, .45-caliber Taurus Millennium handgun and drug paraphernalia in the car, which driver Garant Evans, 31, of Roselle, N.J., consented to have searched.
Mesa said that when he found the car stopped on Interstate 80 in Denville, N.J., he went to speak to Evans and smelled burnt marijuana and alcohol coming from the vehicle. Mesa said he saw Goodson, 25, in the front seat. The loaded, .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun contained 4 Speer rounds and one Winchester hollow point bullet, according to a criminal complaint.
Criminal complaints also said that police found two partially smoked marijuana cigars and drug paraphernalia that included four empty plastic baggies and one Dutchmaster pack containing the two cigars.
