New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was arrested Friday night after exhibiting some very concerning behavior.

Graham was arrested in Southern California on Friday on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance and resisting arrest, according to TMZ.

Police observed Graham wandering in traffic near a Southern California resort on Friday. When they attempted to arrest him, Graham resisted, prompting the second allegation. Graham has since been released, but the incident remains under investigation.

The Saints issued their own statement, saying Graham experienced a medical episode that is being characterized as a “likely seizure.”

Graham is attempting a comeback with the Saints this season after sitting out the 2022 campaign, and was in California with the team ahead of their preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The 36-year-old has had a run-in with traffic before, oddly enough, but this incident sounds much more concerning.
