New York Jets running back Mike Goodson was indicted on weapons charges on Thursday stemming from an earlier arrest in May.

New York Jets running back Michael Goodson was indicted by a grand jury on weapons charges on Thursday.

In a Nov. 7 update, ESPN New York's Jane McManus wrote,"The Morris County (N.J.) Prosecutor's Office announced that Goodson was indicted on a second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon after he was found in a car with a Taurus .45-caliber handgun loaded with an illegal hollow-point bullet. Goodson, 26, was also indicted with possessing the bullet, commonly known as a 'cop killer' because it can penetrate body armor, which is a serious offense in New Jersey."  

McManus says the next step is an arraignment, per Goodson's attorney, Anthony Fusco. 

The charges stem from an incident which occurred on May 17, when Goodson was in a GMC Yukon SUV driven by Garant Evans. The .45-caliber handgun, which both Goodson and Evans denied owning, was discovered in the glove box.

The SUV was reeking of the smell of alcohol and marijuana, according to authorities. Goodson was taken to St. Clarre's Hospital because of his intoxicated state, with the state trooper's affidavit stating the Jets running back was "incoherent" and "slobbering" after he vomited on himself in the passenger seat.

Evans was consequently charged with "certain persons not to have a weapon" on top of his unlawful possession of a weapon and drug possession charges, per Fox Sports' Mike Garofolo. 

Goodson signed a three-year, $6.9 million deal last spring but has suited up for the Jets in just two games this season. He was suspended for the season's first four weeks for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. 

In his second game back from the suspension, he tore his ACL and MCL which prompted the team to place him on injured reserve.
