Roddy White arrested for failure to appear in court

Atlanta Falcons veteran wide receiver Roddy White was briefly jailed Tuesday when he was arrested on a failure to appear warrant stemming from a traffic charge, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Per the report, White was released roughly 90 minutes after being booked into the Gwinnett County Jail on a $168 bond.

"We are aware of the incident involving Roddy White," the Falcons said in a statement. "We anticipate this will be resolved shortly and we will have no further comment at this time.”

White was cited for failing to appear in court on a traffic case for having "non-transparent material on windows."

The four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver is a 2005 first-round draft pick.
