Video shows a shocked Roddy White as he’s arrested after traffic stop

Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was shocked when officers put him in handcuffs after being pulled over April 12 in Gwinnett County, police bodycam video obtained by TMZ shows.

The 37-year-old Braselton resident, was stopped after an HOV lane violation on I-85 and arrested for driving with a suspended or revoked license.

“Why is my driver’s license suspended? Can you tell me why?” White asks officers in the video as he is cuffed.

The revoked licence stemmed from a missed November 2018 court date for a traffic violation.

White’s Audi was impounded and he was released that evening after posting an $801 bond.

In 2014, White was arrested by Gwinnett police for failing to appear in court for a window tint violation issued a year earlier, records show. 

White retired in 2017 as the Falcons’ all-time leading receiver. The one-time All-Pro played 11 seasons in Atlanta amassing 808 catches, 10,863 yards and 63 touchdowns.
