You remember Mike Goodson, don’t you? He was with the Raiders last season — his only season in Oakland — and saw time in the Raiders backfield behind Darren McFadden. It was a brief stay, but he had a decent year, averaging 6.3 yards per carry when he wasn’t hurt—good enough to get $7 million ($1.925 million guaranteed) from the Jets in free agency in March.
Well, his stint with the Jets already hit a speed bump early Friday morning when he was arrested after an SUV he was a passenger in was pulled over by state police on I-80 in Denville, N.J. The driver was charged with DWI. Goodson was apparently also so shithammered that he had to be taken to the hospital.
After police searched the vehicle, both Goodson and the driver, Garant Evans, were slapped with a host of ugly charges: possession of marijuana (under 50 grams), possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a loaded handgun, possession of hollow-point ammunition. Police say the weapon in question was a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun.
Bail for Goodson was set at $50,000.
