NFL linebacker Leroy Hill was arrested in Atlanta for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, according to the Associated Press.

According to a statement released today by Atlanta police, Hill was arrested early Saturday after officers obtained a search warrant for Hill's condo, finding partially smoked blunts and marijuana residue inside.

Hill, 29, has spent his entire NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks, who drafted him out of Clemson in the third round of the 2005 draft. He is now a free agent. Hill has a record of previous run-ins with the law -- he was also arrested in January 2009 on a similar charge of marijuana possession, and he was arrested on a domestic violence charge in a Seattle suburb in April 2010.
