Ravens cornerback Humphrey charged with third-degree robbery

Posted on 25 January 2018 by Luke Jones

Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey was arrested and charged with third-degree robbery on Thursday, according to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

The arrest stemmed from a Jan. 13 incident in which Humphrey allegedly took a phone charger from an Uber driver outside the Hotel Capstone on the University of Alabama campus. According to the accuser, Humphrey had asked to borrow the charger and then refused to give it back, elbowing the driver without leaving a mark or doing any injury.

Upon arriving at the scene, University of Alabama Police discovered the charger did not fit Humphrey’s phone and returned it to the driver. The incident report indicated Humphrey was suspected of using alcohol.

Humphrey was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail Thursday morning on a $2,500 bond.

The Ravens are aware of the incident.

“Marlon told us that it was a misunderstanding regarding a $15 telephone charger, which he thought was his,” the team said in a statement. “Our understanding is that he has been interviewed by University of Alabama Police and is cooperating. We are monitoring the situation.”

Humphrey, 21, was selected in the first round of the 2017 draft after a standout collegiate career at Alabama and played in all 16 games as a rookie, making five starts and finishing with two interceptions. He is the son of former NFL running back and Alabama product Bobby Humphrey.
