Falcons defensive end John Abraham did not comment to media today on his Monday arrest on charges of obstructing police and firefighters.
Abraham was not in the locker room when it was open to media and was escorted off the practice field by two of the team’s public relations officials.
Atlanta police said Abraham was “obviously intoxicated” when he entered a restricted area and refused to leave when ordered. Officials were responding to a call about a woman who threatened to jump from a building at Atlantic Station in Midtown.
Falcons coach Mike Smith said Tuesday the organization was “very disappointed” that a player was involved in an alleged negative incident but wouldn’t say if Abraham would be disciplined. Falcons running back Michael Turner was arrested a week earlier and charged with DUI.
