Orlando police say New York Jets running back Chris Johnson has been arrested and faces a misdemeanor weapons charge.
Sgt. Wanda Ford said an officer pulled Johnson over after he ran a stop sign Friday night. When the officer approached Johnson's vehicle, he said he saw a firearm between Johnson's feet. Openly carrying a gun is generally banned in Florida. The Jets signed Johnson to a two-year, $8 million deal last April, but it was uncertain as to whether he would return to New York after having the least-productive year of his career. He rushed for a career-low 663 yards and one TD.
