Former Alabama and Hoover football standout Marlon Humphrey Thursday was arrested on a robbery charge, authorities said. University of Alabama police arrested Humphrey, who now plays for the NFL's Baltimore Ravens. Investigators say Humphrey and two female companions were picked up by an Uber vehicle at approximately 2 a.m. on Jan. 13 along the Strip. During the ride to the Hotel Capstone, Humphrey asked to use the driver's cellphone charger. Upon exiting the vehicle, Humphrey refused to return the charger, elbowed the driver aside, and balled up his fist, police said. UAPD officers say they found Humphrey inside the hotel still holding the cell phone cable. Humphrey claimed that the cable was his, but officers noticed that the cable did not fit his phone and returned it to the driver, investigators said. The Ravens issued the following statement: “Marlon told us that it was a misunderstanding regarding a $15 telephone charger, which he thought was his. Our understanding is that he has been interviewed by University of Alabama Police and is cooperating. We are monitoring the situation.” Humphrey was charged with third-degree robbery, a felony, along with misdemeanor theft of property and harassment. Humphrey was released from Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $2,500 bond.
