Police found marijuana, acetaminophen and a firearm after inspecting bruises on the girlfriend. He was reportedly charged with battery, possession of marijuana and intent to distribute a schedule 2 drug, according to the report.

Porter played four seasons for the Saints before bouncing around one-year stints with the Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins and finally two seasons with the Chicago Bears.
