Marlon Humphrey: Arrest stemmed from ‘misunderstanding’ over phone charger

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey was arrested in Tuscaloosa on Thursday and charged with third-degree robbery, but the rookie insists there is a reasonable explanation for why police think he was trying to steal a relatively inexpensive item.

According to an incident report obtained by Michael Casagrande of AL.com, Humphrey was arrested by University of Alabama police after he stole a $15 cell phone charger. While the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s booking information says he was charged with third-degree robbery, which is a felony, the incident report lists the act as a misdemeanor of fourth-degree theft. The incident reportedly took place in the early morning of Jan. 13 at the Hotel Capstone on Alabama’s campus, with the victim listed as a 30-year-old man. The suspect — presumably Humphrey — was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol.

Humphrey, the No. 16 overall pick in last year’s draft, told the Ravens the arrest stemmed from a “misunderstanding” and he thought the charger belonged to him.

A copy of the incident report states that Humphrey borrowed a phone charger from an Uber driver and refused to return it.

While Humphrey’s arrest certainly isn’t the most high-profile theft arrest we have seen in sports recently, it’s pretty embarrassing for an NFL player to be accused of stealing a $15 phone charger. Humphrey had better hope his story checks out.

Humphrey started five games for the Ravens this season and appeared in all 16, recording 30 tackles and two interceptions.

Marlon Humphrey: Pick play is ‘somewhat illegal’

Clemson pick play

Alabama defensive back Marlon Humphrey was clearly irritated after his Crimson Tide lost to Clemson 35-31 in the National Championship Game on Monday night.

In particular, the pick plays Clemson used to score touchdowns did not sit well with the sophomore. He apparently called it “somewhat illegal” after the game and was bummed to lose that way.

Clemson beat Alabama on a 2-yard touchdown pass from Deshaun Watson to Hunter Renfroe with 1 second left in the game. Renfroe was able to get so wide open in large part because a teammate cleared the space with a blocking type of move on an Alabama defender:

It’s a tough way to lose, but Clemson outplayed Alabama’s defense on the entire final drive. The Tide had plenty of chances to stop the Tigers and didn’t deliver.

HS recruit Marlon Humphrey tweets about racism at Ole Miss

Marlon-HumphreyFive-star high school recruit Marlon Humphrey may want to lay off Twitter for a while if he is looking to keep the elite college football programs in the nation from giving up on him. As we know, Twitter can create a lot of problems. Humphrey gave us an example of that on Monday when he tweeted about Ole Miss being a racist school.

Most of the action — and there’s plenty of it — can still be seen on Humphrey’s timeline, but he has since deleted a few tweets. According to College Football Talk, it all began Humphrey took an unofficial visit to Ole Miss with his brother and tweeted “Ole Miss was racist haha” before mentioning how they have monthly Ku Klux Klan marches in the area. He later gave a half-hearted apology.

“I’m sorry people y’all ain’t racist, y’all just have KKK marches every month,” he reportedly wrote.

Humphrey, who is ranked the No. 4 cornerback in the class of 2014 by Scout.com, then began retweeting the support he received from fans and players who agree that players who play in Mississippi have to deal with racism. Southern Miss wide receiver Justin Burdette said he knows what Humphrey is talking about.

Despite the storm of controversy he created with his comments, Humphrey told one follower that Ole Miss is still his top choice.
