Former Falcons player Jamal Anderson released

ATLANTA (AP) - Former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal
Anderson has been released from jail on bond following his arrest
on charges of felony cocaine possession and misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Jail spokeswoman Tracey Flanagan says Anderson was released on $6,000 bond just after 8 p.m. Sunday.

The 36-year-old Anderson played eight seasons for the Falcons
before leaving the team with a knee injury in 2001.

A fan favorite, he created the "Dirty Bird" touchdown celebration dance.

Atlanta police say he and 20-year-old Mark Daniel Hudson, both
of Duluth, were in the same stall inside the men's room at
Peachtree Tavern in Atlanta's Buckhead district.

Atlanta police spokesman Officer Otis Redmond says both men are accused of having powder cocaine in their possession and that Anderson had a suspected marijuana cigarette in his pocket.

Hudson is scheduled for a court hearing Monday.
