ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham is free on bond after being arrested on misdemeanor charges when authorities say he refused to leave an area taped off by police.
    
Fulton County jail records showed Abraham was released from custody early Tuesday morning on a $7,000 total bond, or $3,500 for each of two charges of obstruction from Monday night.
    
WAGA-TV reported Abraham allegedly entered a taped-off area where a woman was threatening to jump off a building. Abraham was arrested after refusing requests from firefighters and police to leave the area.
    
The Falcons said late Monday the team was "aware of the news regarding John Abraham." The team said it was gathering more information and would have no further comment at the moment.
