Bills DB Arrested
Columbus, OH - Cleveland police say Buffalo Bills defensive back Donte (DAWN'-tay) Whitner has been shocked with a stun gun
and arrested by officers trying to control a rowdy crowd outside a nightclub.
Lt. Thomas Stacho says the 23-year-old was jailed early Saturday for aggravated disorderly conduct and resisting arrest but hasn't been charged.
The former Ohio State player has been released. A prosecutor will decide whether to file charges.
Police say they shocked and handcuffed Whitner outside the downtown House of Blues when he forced his way past them and then broke free from officers trying to restrain him.
Whitner says in a statement he regrets the incident. He's the third Bills player to run into trouble with the law this year.
A Bills spokesman says the team won't comment until it has more information.
