Baltimore Ravens cornerback and former Alabama player Marlon Humphrey was arrested Thursday after an Uber driver accused him of stealing a $15 phone charger.
According to court records, the driver, 30, said Humphrey, 21, borrowed the charger during a ride from the Strip to Hotel Capstone and refused to return it. The driver said Humphrey elbowed him, “balled up his fist and acted like he wanted to fight.”
The driver said he was taking Humphrey and three women to the hotel at 2 a.m. Jan. 13. He reported the incident to University of Alabama Police, who took the charger back from Humphrey and returned it to the driver. The officers obtained a warrant and arrested Humphrey on Thursday morning.
He was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail Thursday and released around 10:30 a.m. after posting 10 percent of a $2,500 bond for the felony charge.
Humphrey, the son of former Alabama player and NFL running back Bobby Humphrey, signed a four-year contract worth $11,847,480 with the Ravens on May 4, 2017 that included a $6,756,348 signing bonus.
Humphrey’s attorney said it was a misunderstanding.
