It's a homecoming a pro football player from Brenham would probably rather forget.

During a visit back home in Brenham earlier this month, Roderick Green, 26, wound up in the Washington County jail after being charged with possession of marijuana, unlawfully carrying a weapon and interfering with a police officer.

Authorities say Green was pulled over for speeding, then allegedly became uncooperative with the officer. They say a search of his car turned up a handgun and pot.

Green has been an NFL linebacker for five years, the last three with the San Francisco 49'ers.
