BRENHAM, Texas (AP) -San Francisco 49ers linebacker Roderick Green was arrested after he became uncooperative during a traffic stop in his hometown of Brenham.
A Washington County sheriff’s deputy walked to the passenger side of Green’s truck after pulling it over for speeding Feb. 2, said Janie Hart, a sheriff’s department patrol clerk. When the deputy instructed the occupants to roll down the slightly open window, the window was rolled up instead, Hart said Thursday.
After returning to the patrol car, the deputy approached the driver’s side and told Green to get out of the truck. He complied and was arrested. Hart said he was eventually charged with four misdemeanors – reckless driving, unlawfully carrying a weapon, possession of marijuana and interfering with the duties of a police officer.
Green was released on a personal recognizance bond the day after the arrest, Hart said. Green’s agent, James Selmer, didn’t return a call seeking comment.
The 26-year-old Green, an unrestricted free agent, had 12 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks last season, his third with the 49ers. He spent his first two years in the NFL with Baltimore.
