The SportsXchange

New York Jets running back Mike Goodson was arrested in Denville, N.J., as the passenger of a vehicle found stopped in the center-left lane of Route 80 at 3 a.m. Friday.

Goodson was the passenger in a car driver by Garant Evans. He faces charges for possession of marijuana (under 50 grams), possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a loaded handgun and possession of hollow point ammunition according to New Jersey State Police documents obtained by The Sports Xchange.

Goodson was "determined by medics to require hospital evaluation" before being booked at Netcong State Police Barracks, where Evans had been transported earlier.

Police discovered a loaded 45-caliber handgun while searching the vehicle.

Evans was arrested for driving while intoxicated, charged with a separate count of possession of a weapon by persons prohibited because of a prior felony conviction and also with the same five charges Woodson faces. His cash bail was set at $150,000. Bail for Goodson was set at $50,000.

Goodson signed a three-year, $6.9 million contract as an unrestricted free agent. He played last season with the Oakland Raiders, who acquired Goodson from the Carolina Panthers prior to 2012.
