Falcons Star Says Man Holding Jerseys Hostage
GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons Pro Bowl receiver Roddy White says a man he hired to frame football jerseys took the jerseys and won’t give them back.
Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh obtained an application for an arrest warrant filled out by White in Gwinnett County.
White claims he agreed to pay a man to frame two regular season Falcon game jerseys and his Pro Bowl jersey.
White said the men agreed on a price of $400 for each framed jersey, but now the man is asking White for $10,000 and won’t return the jerseys, according to the document.
Kavanaugh exchanged text messages with White on Thursday, and the star receiver told her he did not want to make a big deal out of the situation.
White told Kavanaugh he could not speak on camera because he was training out of state.
Kavanaugh visited the home of the man listed in the warrant application but found no one home at the time.
The man called Kavanaugh a few hours later and said that he has performed several odd jobs for White in the past and he is owed the $10,000.
A judge will hold a hearing and decide if an arrest warrant should be executed next week.
White set Falcon team records in 2010 for receptions and receiving yardage. He also led the league in receptions
