Marlon Humphrey, a former Alabama Crimson Tide standout turned Baltimore Ravens rookie, has been arrested.

According to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s booking information, via, Humphrey is charged with 3rd degree robbery. He was arrested in Tuscaloosa on Thursday.

Third degree robbery is a Class C felony in the state of Alabama. That means this could be a huge deal for Humphrey from a legal standpoint.

To get a better feel of what he’s being charged with, according to state law, it becomes third degree robbery when:

“He/she uses force against the person of the owner of the property or any person present with intent to overcome that person’s physical resistance or physical power of resistance; or (2) he/she threatens the imminent use of force against the person of the owner of the property or any person present with intent to compel acquiescence to the taking of or escaping with the property.”


Oddly enough, the young man tweeted out the following early on Thursday morning:

Only 21, the cornerback was selected in the first round by the Baltimore Ravens last year. A First Team All-American in 2016 while with the Crimson Tide, he appeared in 16 games for Baltimore last season, recording two interceptions in his rookie year.
