(ATLANTA) — Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been arrested on a warrant charging him with failing to appear in court.

Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Deputy Shannon Volkodav confirms that White was booked into jail in suburban Atlanta early Tuesday. He was released about an hour later after posting $168 bond.

A copy of the warrant says White failed to appear in court last March after he was cited on charges of driving a vehicle with tinted windows that were too dark.

A Falcons statement says the team is aware of White’s arrest, adding, “we anticipate this will be resolved shortly.”

It was not immediately known whether White had an attorney.

White was the Falcons’ first-round draft pick in 2005. He had 63 catches for 711 yards and three touchdowns last season.
