Bengals’ Marvin White arrested

Bengals Workouts Football AP

Bengals safety Marvin White was arrested on Thursday in Louisiana after an incident at his child’s daycare center.

Whit is charged with one count of simple assault and one count of disturbing the peace by loud and abusive language.

“Marvin White went to a local child care center to pay a bill for his child and he began to be verbally abusive to the management when the manager assumed he was boyfriend of the child’s mother,” St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said, per the Daily World. “They asked him to leave. He then made threats in front of the children and other adults there toward the management and made comments to his son’s grandmother, who was there to pick up the child.”

White was a fourth-round draft pick of the Bengals in 2007 and spent two years in Cincinnati. He was cut after training camp in 2009, played for both the Lions and Cowboys that year, and returned to the Bengals in 2010. He is set to be a free agent when the league year starts.

    “He is set to be a free agent when the league year starts.”

    That thud you heard was his agent’s jaw hitting the floor.

    How dare they establish the relationship between some random guy and one of the kids they’re paid to oversee!

    So……Grandma was there to pick up HIS child……..Not him, but he has to pay for the care of said child……It all makes sense now…….

    Now I am the first to support our law enforcement guys – and many pro athletes also just don’t get it – these days – they seem to arrest very quickly. And while the article doesn’t say it – wouldn’t doubt that you might have a bit of Louisiana good ole boys doing the arresting? (Sheriff “Bobby” Guidroz)

    Just saying……………

    Anyone who messes with pets, children or old people is a dirt bag. Trade in the Orange and black stripes for ah…. Orange and black stripes.

  9. Kave Krew says: Jul 17, 2011 9:09 AM

    He was born to play for the Steelers…….he gets released and the Steelers sign him the next day…..

    This article is missing a lot of information. In order to participate in Bengal player workouts, you have to be in the local prision where most of the team resides. He just wanted to join his team mates. The Bengal uniform soon will have white stripes replacing the orange.

    These guys walk around ready to explode as they face any crisis their short fuse is lite.

    “and he began to be verbally abusive to the management when the manager assumed he was boyfriend of the child’s mother,”

    Wait a minute…Boyfriend of the child’s mother? Or the child’s mother’s mother? I can understand being offended by the later…but the former?

    “Hell no bi-otch. I aint no boyfriend…I just F’d her.

  13. yankees2009 says: Jul 17, 2011 10:28 AM

    If he’s a free agent, then why is he “Bengals’ Marvin White”? “Safety Marvin White arrested” is a much better headline, Smith.

    Just sayin…

  14. surly1n1nd1anapol1s says: Jul 17, 2011 10:29 AM

    Heavy-handed police? Based upon the story framework this appears appropriate. Boorish behavior and abusive language at a school or daycare, then refuse to leave?

  15. Sandra Lee's Cans says: Jul 17, 2011 10:30 AM

    Why would he get all bent out of shape with the manager assuming he was the boyfriend of the child’s mother? He could have said “No, ma’am, I happen to be the husband of the child’s mother”. He should consult with Antonio Cromartie on how to handle such matters.

    What’s the matter? Not feeling the love over there in Pittsburgh this morning?

  17. crohrbaugh says: Jul 17, 2011 10:35 AM

    So this should read “Free Agent Marvin White…”

  18. dd393 says: Jul 17, 2011 10:41 AM

    The Bengals are certainly having a high participation rate in their own version of player led off-season workouts.

  19. cletusvandam says: Jul 17, 2011 10:47 AM

    How many time did he utter “Do you know who I am”?
    Because I still don’t and I read the article

  20. rgwhodey says: Jul 17, 2011 10:56 AM

    We’re BACK!

    But if it wasn’t for the lock out he currently would NOT be a Bengal, he was only re-signed because half way through the season they needed someone to fill the gaping hole in that secondary when they lost half of their secondary to injuries. And he knew the system already, being a former Bengal.

    So to call him a Bengal, yes technically he is, but really he isn’t…

    Just sayin’

  21. mrclearview says: Jul 17, 2011 10:58 AM

    Shocker, another Bengal or former Bengal arrested. Say it ain’t so.

  22. rayguyreturns says: Jul 17, 2011 10:59 AM

    Wasn’t there a movie about this guy?

    “Daddy Day Care” or similar…

    until the new league year starts, no one is a free agent.

    So what d0 he do wrong. Sound slike the daycare doesn’t know anything thing about the child or the would have known he was the father.

  26. itsmebobd says: Jul 17, 2011 11:52 AM

    Cue all the idiots who forget the bengals have had maybe 2 or 3 arrests in the last 2-3 years, compared to the steelers 10-15. Sure, numbers are facts, but its just so much easier to be ignorant and say things about how the bengals have all of these arrests right? Yet they forget they all had minor offenses compared to some people. Vick fought dogs, but everyones forgiven him. Pacman has a guy shot and paralyzed (before he was a bengal), ben rapes a girl, and all these other d-bags get into big trouble. But a few bengals players get a DUI, Disorderly conduct, or caught with a bag of pot, and they are all “residing in the local prison” Ignorance of the general fan base is pretty apparent these days, as evidenced by guys like this idiot. Dont worry about facts eddyjf, just keep going through like making assumptions and generalizations, you’ll fit in with all the other sheep following blindly to slaughter———–>

    @ itsmebobd, lets just forget the “Steelers having 10-15 arrests” comment…even though it proves your an idiot…
    So DUI’s, Disorderly conduct and having illegal drugs are no big deal to you?? I bet DUI’s were a big deal to you last week when it was Hines Ward everyone was talking about!! WOW, YOUR DUMB!

    Just saying…….WHAT?? You never said anything. What exactly is wrong with the “good ol boys” arresting someone who was disturbing the peace??

    @itsmebobd …

    The Bengals have just had three players arrested and you’re complaining that people will take that out of context compared to the 10-15 players the Steelers have had arrested. Then you have the nerve to spout off about numbers being facts. Right. Hines Ward … care to name the other 9-14 Steelers who’ve recently been arrested? Yeah, numbers are facts :roll:

    Each of these cases stands on its own merit and has nothing to do with the team. It’s dimwits like you who connect it to football. Now you’re just getting some of your own medicine. Enjoy.

    “He made threats”. How about a quote?Could it be his demeanor irritated someone?He was trying to pay a bill for his child, and he was denied. WHAT WAS THE THREAT?

    From May 2010 article……..

    NFL arrests: Bengals, Steelers bad, but others worse

    By Ken Paxson | Tuesday, May 11, 2010, 02:39 PM
    If I asked you to quickly name what football team has had the most players arrested since 2007, what would you say?

    Cincinnati?

    How about Jacksonville, Denver or Miami?

    I bet those three aren’t even on your radar. The fact is that all of those teams have had more players in trouble than the Bengals since 2007, so have Atlanta and Tampa Bay.

    And, hold your nose Steeler fans, Pittsburgh has had the same number of arrested players as the Bengals since ‘07.

    Here’s the breakdown since ‘07:

    Jacksonville (15)

    Denver (12)

    Miami (12)

    Tampa Bay (10)

    Atlanta (10)

    Cincinnati (9)

    Pittsburgh (9)

    Cleveland (8)

  34. Deb says: Jul 18, 2011 10:32 AM

    @Kave Krew …

    I’m aware of that arrest stat. But whether it’s Cincy or Pittsburgh, 9 players arrested over four years has nothing to do with football. Most players on both teams do their jobs, keep their mouths shut, and stay out of trouble. It’s nitwit fans of both teams who tie these things to the organization. They’re grown men and responsible for their own behavior, and each of these situations has to be taken on its own merits.

    At this point, no one has enough facts to pass judgment on White or the current situation involving Pacman. Hines was an idiot, and the law will take its course. But a first offense DUI with no accident wouldn’t normally include jail time no matter who was behind the wheel.
