Buffalo Bills' Donte Whitner Arrested in Cleveland

Donte Whitner, a defensive back for the Buffalo Bills, was arrested around 3am Saturday morning in Cleveland, OH. Cleveland police have confirmed that Whitner was arrested outside the House of Blues.

The 23-year-old was arrested for aggravated disorderly conduct and resisting police. Whitner has not yet been charged.

He was drafted by the Bills as their first pick in the 2006 NFL draft, and was the first player to be taken by the Bills from Ohio State since they drafted Tim Anderson in 2004. Whitner played for Glenville High School in Cleveland prior to heading to OSU.


Before the press convicts him, we should wait to see what the investigation into the incident reveals. If his friend was jumped and police were there, he should not have intervened at that time, however wait until the investigation was completed to see if that is really what happened.

Why do these successful young men feel the need to put themselves in situations that lead to trouble? Message to young professional and college athletes - Stay out of bars and strip clubs, don't associate with drug dealers and gangsters, don't carry weapons, and don't get into fights. You will live longer with plenty of good times spending all the money you make.
