ATLANTA (AP)-Free agent linebacker Leroy Hill was arrested by police in Atlanta for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

According to a statement from Atlanta police on Monday, Hill was arrested early Saturday after officers were called to an Atlanta condominium following a complaint about a marijuana odor.

Officers say they confirmed the smell, obtained a search warrant and found partially smoked blunts and marijuana residue inside.

The Georgia native has spent his entire NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks.

This isn’t Hill’s first run in with off-field problems. He was arrested in January 2009 on a marijuana-possession charge in Georgia and was given 12 months of probation. He also was arrested on a domestic violence charge in a Seattle suburb in April 2010.

Hill played at Baldwin High in Milledgeville and Clemson.
