Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was arrested for a failure to appear at a court date in Dacula, Ga. 

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

The wide receiver was arrested by the Gwinnett Sheriff and booked into the Gwinnett County Jail a little before 4:30 a.m. ET.

White was released on $168 bond "less than 90 minutes later." 

"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."

White, the Falcons first-round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, had his first season below 1,000 yards since 2006 last year and missed the first games of his career in 2013, playing in "only" 13 games.

He's been as dependable as they come and if the worst thing he's done is getting cited for tinted windows, it's quite unlikely he misses any time in the future. 

White certainly didn't look concerned in his mugshot (via the AJC).
