On Thursday morning, news leaked out that Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey had been arrested for felony third degree robbery. The report immediately brought back awful memories for Ravens fans, who have dealt with issues on and off the field for nearly every one of the team’s top draft picks over the last decade.
As more details began to leak out, the story became more embarrassing for Humphrey.
The incident report for Humphrey’s arrest noted that it was for fourth-degree theft (a misdemeanor, unlike the felony charge of third degree robbery) and harassment, while Humphrey was also allegedly under the influence of alcohol.
So, what did Humphrey steal? It wasn’t money, it wasn’t jewelry, it wasn’t electronics – it was a phone charger valued at $15. And Humphrey reportedly stole it from his Uber driver.
A more detailed report states an Uber driver picked up Humphrey and two females from the Strip in Tuscaloosa and drove them to the nearby hotel. The driver said he handed Humphrey a charger when he was asked to borrow one.
Humphrey then, according to the report, refused to return it, elbowed the driver and balled his fist like he wanted to fight. When police arrived, they found Humphrey with the charger but noted it did not fit his phone. It was returned to the driver and police left, according to the report.
Baltimore released a statement about Humphrey’s arrest that didn’t say much of anything, aside from the fact that Humphrey is cooperating with the police.
