    Roddy White arrested for failure to appear in court

    Posted by Darin Gantt on February 18, 2014, 7:40 AM EST

    Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was arrested early this morning, on a warrant from a previous traffic citation.

    According to Mike Morris of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, White was arrested in Gwinnett County at 4:30 a.m., after a failure to appear warrant from a citation for “non-transparent material on windows.”

    He was released 90 minutes later on $168 bond.

    Though window-tinting arrests are typically among the most flimsy charges a cop can haul you in for, he still failed to fulfill his duty to appear. But as the smile in his mug shot indicates, it’s hardly something White seems distraught over.

    You have to go to a court date for tinted windows?

    Apparently in Atlanta yes or so I've heard they have all these traffic violations they're stringent on.

    Damn. At most here in Indianapolis you will get a ticket.

    Well, you get the ticket, if you don't take care of that then they'll put out a 'waiting warrant' on you. They won't pursue you, but the next time you get pulled over or whatever - they'll take you in on the warrant.

    Or so I've heard ............

    They'll take you in on a seatbelt ticket. I forgot to pay one back a few years ago, and ended up being handcuffed and taken to county for two hours over $25.

    That was a really fun day.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    If you want some real 'fun' get a ticket 'fixed' and then have the 'fixer's assistant' drop the ball and forget to pull the ticket... And then the comedy of errors ensues. Add in a summons that apparently was lost or never mailed, immediate license suspension notice on a Friday evening from the court, Columbus Day being the following Monday (IOW Gov offices closed), a weekend 'hotline' to the local police to see when/if the suspension actually shows up, the BMV, the prosecutor, a fax that apparently was slow to be seen in Indy, a notice of suspension from the BMV except it allows a 2 week window contrary to the court order which seemed would make everything better with everyone working on it the day following Columbus Day... then a 2nd BMV notice of suspension at the end of a couple of weeks only this time immediate and arriving on a Saturday..... and then finally a SATURDAY call to the BMV with them finding no record of a suspension at the BMV....
