Back in January, Ravens corner Marlon Humphrey found himself in a little bit of legal trouble while visiting his old college stomping grounds in Tuscaloosa. He was booked by police for allegedly stealing an Uber drier’s $15 phone charger.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey is charged with felony 3rd degree robbery, according to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s booking information. The arrest was made by University of Alabama police. Humphrey just completed his rookie season in Baltimore.
According to the incident report, the item allegedly stolen was a phone charger valued at $15. The incident report lists it as fourth-degree theft, a misdemeanor. The report also lists harassment among the offenses. The suspect was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol.
You aren’t the only one surprised that a University of Alabama cop arrested a former football player and first-round draft pick.
“Marlon has 11 million reasons not to steal a … phone charger,” Humphrey’s attorney, Paul Patterson, said Thursday night referring to Humphrey’s four-year, $11.8 million contract signed before his rookie season.
“Marlon has not had an opportunity to tell his side of the story,” Patterson said. “The Uber driver makes a lot of allegations in that report that simply are not true. Fortunately for Marlon, we have eyewitnesses who are willing to testify about what accurately transpired between Marlon and the Uber driver.”
His case will be heard on March 1st.
In the meantime, Marlon seems to be getting on with his life just fine and seems to have a decent sense of humor about the ridiculousness of getting arrested for a phone charger. Some Ravens fans clearly heard about his phone charger issue and took upon themselves to prevent another incident in the future.
So this is what they sent him.
If he’s really smart, he’ll finagle an endorsement deal out of this. Surprised some company hasn’t jumped on this yet.
