EX-Falcon Jamal Anderson Arrested for Second DUI

Former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal Anderson has been arrested again for DUI, according to reports.

Anderson, who played for the Falcons from 1994 to 2001, was arrested and charged after a traffic stop Sunday morning around 2 a.m., according to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.

He was stopped on Friendship Road at Deaton Creek Parkway for failing to maintain his lane.

He bonded out of jail around 10 a.m. Sunday.

This is the second DUI arrest in less than a year for Anderson, who was charged in Gwinnett County last November after he was found passed out in his Cadillac Escalade near the I-85/Ga. 316 merger.

Anderson was reportedly scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday for the November charges, according to reports.
