GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was shocked when officers put him in handcuffs after being pulled over April 12 in Gwinnett County.

The 37-year-old Braselton resident, was stopped after an HOV lane violation on I-85 and arrested for driving with a suspended or revoked license.

“Why is my driver’s license suspended? Can you tell me why?” White asks officers in the video as he is cuffed.
