Uh oh! Jets running back Michael Goodson was reportedly arrested in New Jersey after he was caught in possession of a loaded handgun and some weed.

Michael Goodson was hospitalized for intoxication after he was reportedly arrested in Denville, New Jersey in the early hours of May 17. Michael, 25, was allegedly in possession of .45 caliber and around 50 grams of weed, and appeared to be highly intoxicated when he was first found by police.

Michael Goodson Arrested: Alleged Drug & Gun Possession

Michael was a passenger in an SUV that was parked along Route 80 in Denville, NJ, when he was approached by police. He and the driver of the vehicle appeared to be very intoxicated inside the car, reports TMZ.

The police allegedly found less than 50 grams of weed and a loaded .45 caliber with hollow-point bullets, when they searched the car. Hollow-tips are extremely dangerous and are not allowed to be carried around in public, with few exceptions.

Both men were transported to a local hospital for treatment because they were allegedly so intoxicated, and the driver of the car was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

Michael and the driver have since been released from the hospital and are in the custody of the NJ State Police.

This is truly shocking news.

Michael joined the Jets on a three year contract on March 15, 2013. His father, Mike Goodson Sr., is serving time in prison for mortgage fraud, and his sentence runs through 2027.

What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked Michael was arrested?
