Chris Johnson is starting the offseason on the wrong foot, getting arrested in Orlando last night on a misdemeanor weapons charge for "open carrying of weapons/firearms," according to a report from Erika Esola. ESPN has the details of this relatively minor offense:

Johnson was pulled over after rolling through a stop sign, according to a source close to the player. Police asked to search his car, and he cooperated. His licensed and registered firearm was found under a book bag under a seat instead of locked up, resulting in the charge for "open" carrying.
