DAPHNE, AL (FOX19) - Former Bengal defensive end Antwan Odom was arrested this week in Alabama for possession of marijuana.

According to Baldwin County jail records, Odom, 30, was booked on Dec. 15 and released on a $1,000 bond.

The Mobile Press-Register reports that Odom was arrested during a traffic stop on Interstate 10.

Odom was released by the Bengals over the summer. The team signed him as a free agent from Tennessee after the 2007 season. His Bengals career was plagued by several injuries.

Almost a month after he was released, Odom was shot by a childhood friend in Alabama. He suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Odom's Mason home was also destroyed in a fire earlier this year. The cause was undetermined.
