Possible Complications for Roddy White

Background: Recently, Roddy White was in Virginia helping out at Michael Vick's youth football camp. After the camp, White attended a birthday party for Michael Vick at a club near Vick's hometown. During the party, there was a shooting which injured one of Vick's co defendants from his dogfighting trial. According to Vick's attorney, Vick had left the party well before the shooting occured. White apparently echoed this claim, saying he and Vick had left the party prior to the shooting. Apparently, there is video evidence which suggests that Vick did not leave until about three minutes prior to the shooting. This puts Vick's lawyer's statements in question, and unfortunately, White's statements as well. Likely, White will be interviewed by the NFL in regards to the shooting incident. It doesn't seem likely at this time that White will suffer any legal or league consequences. However, should this turn out poorly, it will not help his or the teams image. I hope that White is truthful in any interviews and re-evaluates his commitment to his friend, Michael Vick. While there may be no wrongdoing on either of their parts, White must be aware of any potentially damaging perceptions created by his behaviors and choices. As long as he is a professional athlete, he will be held to a higher standard. What are your thoughts on this situation?
