John Abraham didn't speak to media members a day after his arrest on obstruction charges.

Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham did not speak to the media on Tuesday following his Monday arrest. Abraham was arrested for allegedly obstructing police and firefighters, who were responding to a call regarding a woman threatening to jump off a Midtown building.

Abraham, who was intoxicated at the time of the incident, according to police, entered a restricted area and then refused to leave. He reportedly was arguing with police before finally being arrested.

This is not the only legal incident involving a Falcons player recently, as running back Michael Turner was arrested on DUI charges last week. Turner was not suspended by the team, and no punishment for Abraham has been announced.

Abraham has started all three games for the Falcons in 2012 and has two sacks. He is in his seventh season with the Falcons, and he has racked up 114 sacks in 12+ NFL seasons.
