Roddy White was arrested this morning for just about the most benign reason you can possibly imagine.
Confirming @MikeConti929 report that @Atlanta_Falcons WR Roddy White arrested early Tuesday morning on bench warrant for traffic violation— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) February 18, 2014
Update: Roddy White had outstanding warrant for not paying traffic violation for illegal tints. Spent 77 mins in jail; Now out on $168 bond— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) February 18, 2014
Side note on Roddy White: #Falcons have history of problems with their players getting cited by local police for tinted window violations.— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) February 18, 2014
So forgetting to pay a fine for window tint, which is certainly a crime but not a significant one. I'm not sure our hearts will heal from this cruel betrayal, Roddy White.
The only interesting thing here is that the Falcons apparently have a tint ring going, per Marvez's last Tweet. The Falcoholic's writers were trying to figure out who he was talking about and came up with Michael Turner's traffic arrest and possibly Jonathan Babineaux's arrest all those years ago. The question is, are there other player vehicles going around with heavily tinted windows that we don't know about? Let's hope not.
Slow news days, folks. Slow news days.
