Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute after a police officer said he smelled marijuana in the player's SUV during a routine traffic stop Thursday night.

Babineaux, 28, was released from the Gwinnett County jail shortly after 5 a.m. Friday after paying a $5,700 bond, according to jail records.

The team said in a statement:“We are aware of the situation concerning Jonathan Babineaux and are in the process of gathering information. Because this is a legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time.”

Babineaux is set to meet with team officials Friday morning and will likely still play Sunday.
