Former Falcon Roddy White arrested on traffic charges in Gwinnett

Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was arrested in Gwinnett County last week for driving with a suspended license, jail records show.

The 37-year-old Braselton resident, whose given name is Sharod White, faces two charges: HOV lane violation and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

Gwinnett police said an incident report won’t be available until Monday, but jail records indicate White was booked about 6:30 p.m. on April 12. He was released that evening after posting an $801 bond.

The Falcons’ all-time receiving leader spent his entire NFL career in Atlanta, playing 11 seasons and getting selected to the Pro Bowl four times. He was named All-Pro in 2010 after leading the league with 115 receptions.
