Jets' Goodson indicted on weapons charges

Morristown, NJ ( - 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 devices.

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.
