Falcons' Abraham cities 'bad timing' on arrest

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham is calling his arrest on obstruction of justice charges a matter of "bad timing."

Abraham was arrested Monday night when Atlanta police and firefighters were trying to calm a woman who was threatening to jump from a midtown building window.

The 4-time Pro Bowl pick was charged with two misdemeanors. He said Thursday that "sometimes you try to do the right thing and it doesn't end up being the right thing."

Atlanta police officer Christopher Blaise said this week that Abraham refused to leave an area that had been taped off by authorities. Blaise added that Abraham smelled of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet and had slurred speech and bloodshot eyes.
