[FLASHBACK: Mugshot Mania – Michael Turner Popped for D.U.I…]
This time it’s Falcons wide receiver Roddy White, who posed for the cheerful mugshot above after being arrested in Gwinnett County early this morning (February 18, 2014).
(Sidebar: Am I the only one who can you hear Lil Wayne’s voice saying ‘Look me in my face… I ain’t got no worries’ when looking at Roddy’s mug shot?)
White, whose full name is Sharod Lamar White was in the news the same time last year for baby mama drama (click HERE if you missed that), however his recent brush with the law has absolutely nothing to do with his paternity issues.
According to the AJC, White was arrested early this morning on a failure to appear warrant in Gwinnett County and booked into the Gwinnett County Jail just before 4:30 a.m.
White was arrested after being pulled over by Gwinnett police just after 3 a.m. this morning for allegedly going 75 mph in a 65 mph zone on I-85 near Old Peachtree Road. When officers checked his license the outstanding ‘failure to appear’ warrant came up and he was taken to jail.
The arrest stemmed from his alleged failure to appear in court on a traffic charge issued a year ago for illegal window tinting.
The Gwinnett sheriff’s website shows an outstanding warrant for White on a charge of “non-transparent material on windows.”
At White’s request, the Audi A8 he was driving was released to the front seat passenger, and White was taken to jail. He was issued a written warning for speeding prior to being taken to Gwinnett County jail for booking.
White was detained for about 90 minutes and released on $168 bond.
The 32 year-old player was the Falcons’ first round draft choice out of the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2005. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl four times.
The Falcons issued a statement Tuesday morning, saying,
“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.”
In other words… move along. Nothing to see here…. except Roddy’s smiling face. :- )
