Atlanta Falcons Safety William Moore found himself in a Fulton County jail on a simple battery charge Thursday night. Fulton County jail records showed Moore remained in custody Thursday night. No details of the arrest were immediately available.
The Falcons released a statement saying the team was aware of the “situation involving William Moore” and was gathering more information. Moore had a spectacular 2012 season and ended up as a pro bowl alternate and a free agent after the season.
That did not last long, as the Falcons gave him a five-year, $32 million deal, including $14 million guaranteed, to re-sign with the Falcons. He finished the season with four interceptions and 105 tackles despite missing four games with a hamstring injury.
