Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was arrested Tuesday morning for failure to appear in a Georgia court.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, White had been previously cited by the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department for "non-transparent material on windows" and had an outstanding warrant for not appearing on that charge.

The report says White, whose full name is Sharod Lamar White, was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail just before 4:30 a.m. He was released about 90 minutes later on $168 bond, according to jail records.

"We are aware of the incident involving Roddy White," the Falcons said in a statement. "We anticipate this will be resolved shortly and we will have no further comment at this time."

The 32-year-old White, the Falcons' first-round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, caught 63 passes for 711 yards and three touchdowns last season.
