Whitner Hoping Charges Will be Dropped in a Cleveland Court Tuesday

Bills safety Donte Whitner will be in a courtroom in Cleveland on Tuesday, and hopes that charges of aggravated disorderly conduct and resisting arrest will be dropped against him regarding a case in a Cleveland nightclub.

“The latest is I have a court date [Tuesday], and hopefully everything gets dropped [Tuesday], and that’s what my lawyer is telling me,” Whitner said to the Buffalo News. ”As far as my side of the story, I can assure everyone that I didn’t do anything wrong, and anybody that knows me and knows what type of person I am, what type of things I stand by, they know I didn’t do anything wrong. And actually we have a video tape of the whole incident. It was sent to my lawyer I think last week, so hopefully we’re going to get it all figured out.”

Police reports state that Whitner allegedly forced his way past police officers and was handcuffed and booked after being tasered.

Shortly after the arrest, Whitner released a statement of apology through his agent, saying: “It’s not how I wish to conduct myself, and I apologize to all those involved.”
