William Moore Arrested On Traffic Charges, Released On Bond

William Moore was arrested Tuesday in Gwinnett night for assorted traffic charges, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Mike Morris. The Atlanta Falcons safety, who took over for Erik Coleman as the team's starter last season, "was booked into the county jail about 2 p.m., charged with speeding, driving with a suspended license and failure to appear," according to police.

He was released late Tuesday night on $1,040 bond.

Moore has played in 18 games since joining the Falcons from the Missouri Tigers. He played in only two his rookie season before being sidelined due to injury, but started every game in 2010. The team released Coleman earlier this offseason. 

He's now the 10th NFL player to be arrested since the lockout began over a month ago, a rate that will surely trigger a hand-wringing article or two, even though this is about the standard amount of arrests for this time of year.
