Ex-Falcons RB Jamal Anderson charged with DUI

Former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal Anderson was arrested on charges of drunken driving early Sunday morning in DeKalb County, Ga.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Anderson was pulled over at 4:30 a.m. According to report, Anderson was traveling so slow that he was impeding traffic. He was charged with not maintaining a minimum speed.

It’s not the first trouble for the 39-year-old since his playing days ended. Three years ago, an off-duty police officer accused Anderson of doing cocaine in the bathroom of a suburban Atlanta bar. Charges were eventually dropped.

Anderson is among a large group of former NFL players that have sued the league over concussions.
