Former New York Jets and Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is in trouble with the law once again.

Wilkerson was arrested and charged this week by New Jersey State Police with DWI, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

It is Wilkerson’s second DWI arrest within the past year as the 30-year-old continues to run into issues with substances off the field.

Wilkerson emerged as one of the NFL’s best defensive lineman in 2015, earning second-team All-Pro honors and making his first trip to the Pro Bowl.

Things seemed to fall apart for him after signing a five-year, $86 million contract extension in 2016.

The free-agent lineman couldn’t find work this past season and a return to the NFL is even more unlikely following his latest arrest.
