Falcons wide receiver Roddy White briefly jailed in Ga. for failure to appear in court
ATLANTA – Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been arrested on a warrant charging him with failing to appear in court.
Gwinnett County sheriff's Deputy Shannon Volkodav confirmed White was booked at the jail in that Atlanta suburb early Tuesday. Jail records show he was released about an hour later after posting $168 bond.
Volkodav said the warrant for White's arrest came from Gwinnett County Recorder's Court, indicating he failed to show up for court on an unspecified traffic citation.
A team statement said the Falcons were aware of White's arrest, adding, "we anticipate this will be resolved shortly."
It was not immediately known if White had an attorney.
White was the Falcons' first-round draft pick in 2005. He had 63 catches for 711 yards and three touchdowns last season.
