Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Sharod "Roddy" White, 32, was arrested Tuesday morning on a warrant for failure to appear in court on a traffic charge, reports WSB TV.

White was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail with bond set at $168; he was released later in the morning after posting bond. He was arrested by a Gwinnett County police officer.

According to the jail docket book, White is listed as a Braselton resident.

The warrant was for a traffic-related offense in Dacula, WSB reported.

The football team posted this brief statement on its website: “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.”

ESPN says White allegedly failed to appear in court on a traffic charge. He had an outstanding warrant related to a charge for "non-transparent material on windows."

Seems he got what he deserved. No show, you get a warrant Lucky he was out in less than a few hours. Others would have stayed longer in jail. Can you spell SPECIAL?
