Cowboys CB Marquez White Charged With Aggravated Assault With Deadly Weapon


According to the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys CB Marquez White has been charged with a felony count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

White allegedly pulled a gun in an apparent road-rage incident that occurred back in October of last year. According to White, the other driver was following him closely and pulled up next to him and began yelling threats and racial slurs.

“Simultaneously while doing this he began to reach towards his glove box and that is when I flashed my weapon,” White said in the statement to the Dothan (Ala.)¬†Eagle.

For there, White says that the other driver followed him to his home and called the police. White wasn’t arrested at the time, but a warrant was eventually issued last month.

White says that he and his attorneys “believe strongly that this a personal attack on my image as well as the Star.”

White was released on $7,500 bond.

White, 23, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2017. He was waived at the start of last season and later signed to the team’s practice squad.

Dallas brought White back on a futures contract this past January.

During his four-year college career at Florida State, White recorded 65 tackles, five tackles for a loss, four interceptions and six pass defenses over the course of 31 games.
