Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has run afoul of the law in minor fashion.
The evolution of the NFL:Take a look at how the NFL has evolved from its humble roots, and the efforts being made to ensure it continues to grow.
White was arrested in Gwinnett County, Ga. early Tuesday morning on a failure to appear warrant, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Online jail records confirmed the arrest.
He already has been released from police custody on $168 bond.
The four-time Pro Bowl receiver was sought on an outstanding warrant for “non-transparent material on windows.” It’s a minor incursion and should not land him in hot water under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
The Falcons released the following statement regarding White: “We are aware of the incident involving Roddy White. We anticipate this will be resolved shortly and we will have no further comment at this time.”
Entering the final season of a six-year, $48 million contract, White is expected to hammer out a reasonable long-term extension this offseason. Unless there’s more to the story, his slap on the wrist won’t change those plans in the organization’s eyes.
