Fort Walton Beach. FL (AP) - Former San Francisco 49ers
running back Glen Coffee has been arrested on a gun charge in the
Fort Walton Beach police say he was arrested Thursday night and
charged with possession of a concealed firearm. He was released
from jail Friday morning.
According to the arrest report, an officer pulled over Coffee's
2008 Cadillac for excessive speed. Coffee reportedly failed to
provide registration or proof of insurance and the vehicle was
towed. A cocked pistol was found in the center console.

wanted to focus on ministry. As a rookie last season, Coffee was
the team's second-leading rusher with 226 yards.
A message left Friday night at a phone listing for Coffee was
not immediately returned.
