Ex-Falcon Jamal Anderson arrested again

Former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal Anderson has run afoul of the law again.

Anderson, 43, was arrested overnight in Forsyth County on a suspended license charge and a move-over violation charge, sheriff’s spokesman Epifanio Rodriguez told Channel 2 Action News. Anderson was released from jail on $1,780.50 bond.

In April, Anderson was released from jail in Hall County, where he served five days. He was originally given a 24-month sentence, including 12 days in jail, after pleading guilty to DUI and failure to maintain charges after a September arrest. He was released early due to good behavior and getting credit for time already served, his attorney, Arturo Corso, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In a separate DUI case in Gwinnett County, Anderson was sentenced to 12 months on probation, ordered to surrender his driver’s license, complete 40 hours of community service, and avoid alcohol after his guilty plea in January, The AJC reported.

Anderson was the offensive star of the Falcons’ 1998 Super Bowl team. He also was popular for his “Dirty Bird” touchdown dance.
