Daaaaaaaamn Gina! Apparently John Abraham got arrested at Atlantic Station today.

According to a copy of the police report provided by Chafee, officers moved people away from the scene and put up crime scene tape to restrict onlookers from the area. The police report said Abraham entered the restricted area and was confronted by a firefighter who "repeatedly ordered him to leave the scene."

I'll be honest, this sounds like two or three cowboy cops decided to assert their authority. I don't mean to offend anyone, but there are bad seeds in every profession, and law enforcement is certainly no exception. Granted, he should have complied with their orders, but this just reeks of a misguided power trip.

I'm curious about Abraham's relationship with this woman. Speculation aside, his conduct is odd, almost like he knows her or something. Details may or may not emerge in the days ahead. He hasn't been charged yet, only arrested, so it's possible that this will all go away. In any case, these arrests are no bueno.

Again, I don't think we should speculate too much. Weigh in as you see fit.
