NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets running back Mike Goodson is facing drug and weapons charges after a New Jersey traffic stop.
State police say Goodson was a passenger in a vehicle driven by 31-year-old Garant Evans of Roselle. Police found them stopped in the left lane of Interstate 80 in Denville at about 3:15 a.m. Friday.
Sgt. Adam Grossman says both men were charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and three weapons charges stemming from a handgun found in the vehicle.
Evans also is charged with DWI, multiple traffic violations and weapons possession with a prior felony.
Both men are held pending transfer to the Morris County jail.
Goodson played three seasons for Carolina and one for Oakland before the Jets signed him to a three-year deal in the offseason.
