Former New England Patriots star running back Mack Herron has been arrested on heroin possession charges in Chicago. Herron, who is only 5 foot, 5 inches tall, set the NFL record for all purpose yards in 1974. Herron put up 2,444 yards rushing, receiving and returning kicks. Although that record has since been broken, Herron’s 174.3 yards-per-game is still the best in NFL history.
Herron has been arrested some 20 times since the end of his playing career-all on narcotics charges.
